It is with much sadness that I have to share the news of the loss of another member of the Alien family. Charles Lippincott, the publicist who worked on the original Alien, has passed away following a heart attack. Bumpy, his wife, shared the unfortunate news via Charley’s Facebook page.
I’ve had the pleasure following Charles on Facebook and Twitter for some years now, and he was frequently posting publicity stills and sharing anecdotes from him time working on Alien – and his other films, such as the original Star Wars and Judge Dredd. Charles had also been working with Titan to publish a book collecting all of Bob Penn’s on-set photography from Alien.
Charles will be missed. The thoughts of the Aliens vs. Predator Galaxy staff and community go out to Charles’s family and friends. Rest in peace, Charles.
