Sad Irony (and Really Old News)

Am just vegging out today and popped in my copy of Heathers as I hadn't seen that in forever. And when it was done I watched the little featurette on the film, with interviews from the cast a crew years after the film was made.

They had interviews with just about everyone except one of the "Heathers", which was explained by a shot of her and the end, with her name (Kim Walker) and "1968-2001" underneath.

I was curious about her early death, and, according to Wikipedia, Walker died of complications from a brain tumor.

The sadly ironic thing about this is that one of her many memorable lines in Heathers was: "Did you eat a brain tumor for breakfast?"
