I'd watch the end credits sometimes, and I'd wonder about the lonely-looking wanderer making his way to his next adventure. David Carradine, who passed away last week, personified the eternal student of Eastern spirituality. His quest for peace and wisdom seemed authentic because, in some ways, it was.
A prolific actor, Carradine was known for his television, commercial, and movie roles. Many he reprised, including his famous Kung Fu character, as well as his role as Frankenstein in Death Race and, most recently, his triad of appearances in Tarantino's Kill Bill trilogy. His soft voice and iconic face will be missed greatly, both by my mother and the thousands of other fans, and his mark on the entertainment world will never be forgotten.
