Star of NOTLD is gone

Karl Hardman, star of the original Night Of The Living Dead, (he was "Harry Cooper") has passed away at the age of 80. He was the real life father to Kyra Schon, who played his daughter in the classic Romero film.

He was also part of classic AM radio in Pittsburgh in the 1960s. For more on the Cordic & C0. radio show he worked in as a writer and performer, go here and then here. (The latter is a newspaper article from 1970.)

He will be missed.
