Miguel Ferrer’s birthday
Originally shared by Kenneth Johnson
February 7th Memoriam Spotlight: Miguel Ferrer died less than a month ago, way too soon, but he left us with a marvelous legacy and a wealth of family and friends who keep his memory alive. Opposite his true nature, Miguel often portrayed villains, tough guys or unscrupulous politicians and officials. Miguel also performed in two bands with friend Bill Mumy, played drums on a Keith Moon album, and helped childhood friend Carrie Fisher prepare for her audition for „Star Wars” (1977). In failing health as his throat cancer made speaking difficult, Miguel nonetheless showed at at rehearsals – even when he was not in a scene – for the benefit of his „NCIS: Los Angeles” cast mates, testimony to his generous spirit and dedication to his craft.
