Latest News: Hats off for Macnee

Picture of Patrick Macnee 25th Jun 2015

British actor, Patrick Macnee, has provided a further success for DeathList 2015’s hot streak. Macnee began his career in movies in the 1940s and 50s but got his biggest break in 1961 when he was cast as bowler-hatted British secret agent, John Steed, in The Avengers TV show. The show ran for 8 years, but was then rebooted as The New Avengers in the mid-1970s. The 93 year old Macnee was making his third appearance on DeathList, rising to 14th position this year. Macnee’s death is the 6th success in the last 6 weeks and the 8th of the year so far.


The DeathList 2015

The DeathList committee has once again called upon numerous sources of information to compile its list of 50 celebrities that it considers most likely to die in 2015. A quick recap on the DeathList rules: Candidates must be famous enough such that their death is expected to be reported by the UK media; Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die in the near future and only half of the candidates can have appeared on the previous year’s list. DeathList 2014 ended with a disappointing total of 10 successes so we will be looking for DeathList 2015 to show some better form.
