Celebrities Who Died At Their Peak
... and what they'd have gone on to achieve if they hadn't.
Quite a maudlin topic, but hey, it's the middle of March and snowing so I'm in no mood to be cheery!
Just a contribution thread to see who we think died at the peak of their fame/ influence, and maybe speculate as to what they'd have gone on to achieve if they'd have lived.
(Given the thread title, no Sonny Bono jokes please!)
I'll start with James Dean.
Maverick actor and original Hollywood bad boy. Would only be in his early 80's now, so I imagine would be taking the roles meant for Clint Eastwood.
Could well have become the first R&B superstar of the noughties- died before her peak, but was well on the ascension. Might have stopped the rise of Beyonce.
