RIP Richard Hatch

I'm still in shock.  I found out that Richard Hatch past away today.

Richard Hatch was more than just an actor to me.  I was lucky enough to have known him.   Years ago, I took acting class from him at his house.  I always thought it was interesting that he had two houses on that lot, but lived in the smaller one in the back.  It was a nice one bedroom, but the nicest thing was the fan art he had on display.  He was very proud of it.  He was a loving, kind person.  I haven't had any contact with him in years, so I am stunned to hear of his passing. I had no idea he had been suffering from pancreatic cancer.

With his portrayal of Apollo on Battlestar Galactica, so much of life changed.

I discovered Fandom, FanFiction, FanArt and Fanzines.  Online fandom via Email groups, Yahoo Groups, and Livejournal.  I wrote my first fanfic, drew my first fan art, made my first music videos.  So many firsts!

Not to mention all the people I've met online.

He was my first young adult crush.

I'm going to miss him, so very much.

R.I.P Richard
