Hours ago, Variety reported that Oscar-nominated actress Juanita Moore passed away Tuesday at her Los Angeles home. Ms. Moore is probably best known for her work as 'Annie Johnson' in 1959's Imitation of Life. She was 99 years old.
Previously, websites have stated that Ms. Moore was born on October 19, 1922, but her grandson, Kirk Kahn has told sources that she was actually born in 1914.
My heart, my thoughts, and my prayers go out to Ms. Moore's loved ones during this time.
My heart, thoughts, and prayers also go out to the family and friends of Mr. James Avery. May both of these dynamic performers rest in eternal peace.
