I got some very sad news today that’s been spreading out on the Web about a friend who passed away at a very young age this morning: Daniel Robert Epstein.
The name may not mean much, but if you’ve been doing this online journalism thing for more than a few years, there’s a good chance you’ve seen his work. A tireless interviewer (and one of the best), Epstein logged a ton of amazing interviews for sites like Film Stew and Suicide Girls in his time and made a good amount of friends along the way.
I met him when I visited the set of Wrong Turn 2 last year and have since run into him a few times, and I called him a friend. Now he’s passed away after only 31 years, far too soon for someone of his disposition and talent.
Devin over at CHUD did a great write-up about him, having been friends with him for years, and Wrong Turn 2 director Joe Lynch put up a very touching piece in his blog you should read here. Our thoughts go out to Daniel’s friends and family. He will be sorely missed.
If you knew the man, honor his memory in our forums!
