2020 Geeky Good-byes

2020 Geeky Good-byes

We regularly write about the passing of celebrities with geek-friendly credits in our Good-byes category. However, we aren’t always able to write a post for everyone, especially near to the time we may hear the report of a death. This page will list them.

Starting in 2018, we began including the Geek Factor score we created for Battle of the Network Stars (slightly adapted, since it included people with no geek credits, and those won’t be listed here).

Geek Factor

Geek Factor Unknown (GF?): it can be hard to determine the Geek Factor with celebrities with primarily non-English credits
Geek Factor 1 (GF1): perhaps a few scattered minor roles
Geek Factor 2 (GF2): at least one featured geek-friendly role
Geek Factor 3 (GF3): at least one starring geek-friendly role, or a featured geek-friendly role based on an existing gf character, or multiple featured geek-friendly roles
Geek Factor 4 (GF4): more than one starring gf role, or a starring GF role based on an existing GF character, or an established career as a geek-friendly supporting player…thought of by the public as a geek-friendly actor
Geek Factor 5 (GF5): icon

I do try to improve these, so I thought in 2019 I’d explain my wording. When I say someone was “in” something, it means a movie or a one time (guest) appearance. If they were “on” a show, it means a recurring/regular role.
