Larry Hagman, famous for playing J.R Ewing in the TV series ‘Dallas’, died Friday at age 81: Goodbye, friend!
Yesterday, on November 23, 2012, ‘Dallas’ star Larry Hagman (J.R.) died and a lot of memories come to mind. I remember him when I was a teenager, I remember to finish quickly my schoolwork to can watch ‘Dallas’ on TV. My mother doesn’t allow me to watch J.R. until be sure my schoolwork was finished. In fact, at home we never talked about ‘Dallas’ but about J.R. because he was the absolutely star of the famous TV series.
What a time! What a sensational TV series… that ‘Dallas’! Never before, we had seen a so bad main character on a TV series. He was a demon, and the funny thing was that we love him to be a demon, so different to the others, every time cheating, every time making the worst tricks and dark business.
We laughed then, seeing the worst face of businesses and we could laugh because it was a TV series. The reality was different, we thought, and Larry Hagman, our J.R., was only a fiction. Plato said ‘good people imagine what bad people do’. Yes, we thought J.R. was only a fictional character, played by a great actor. Now, we are living a terrible economic crisis due to dark business and dark businessmen, and when yesterday Larry Hagman died, fiction died with him, because demons are now part of our sad reality.
Goodbye J.R.! Goodbye forever!
Larry Hagman’s family has said: “Larry was back in his beloved Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved most.” “Larry’s family and close friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday. When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for.”
It seems the sad death has been the result of complications that arose from a recent battle with cancer.
