Kehaar curse
« on: January 10, 2018, 11:45:19 PM »
Now, I'm probably looking into a theory I've thought about way too much but I find it compelling to discuss the fact that all three voice actors that have voice Kehaar up until now are all dead.

Zero Mostel voiced him but died in 1977 before he heard what it sounded like.

Rik Mayall  voiced Kehaar in Seasons 1 and 2 but died in 2014.

Anthony Jackson who voice Kehaar in the Season 3 died in 2006.

Hopefully nothing bad will happen to Kim Bodnia, who is voicing him in the miniseries...

It feels like the Illuminati just hates Kehaar the Gull.

Maybe they don't die, but became Kehaar themselves and travelled to the Big Waters.

If you're thinking spiritual then I still don't get it.

Only one would be allowed to reincarnate into Kehaar.

But yeah, their early deaths makes it feel like that "Superman curse" that goes that people who play Superman have died early in their lives.

I like Trifolium's theory :D

What if there are several different Kehaar's, for each fictional universe of WD?  One for the books, one for the film, one for the series... :glowingfiver

Well it was more of a comical roll but it is sad they did the voice and all of them are dead.
