|A truly talented, actor.|
River was a world apart from the teen idols,
in that he seemed to have an intensity on screen
which can only come from within and cannot be learnt.
One of the world's finest actors and human beings
has been taken from us. May his spirit find rest
for he shall surely live on in the hearts of his
family, friends and the millions who have been
touched by his acting.
I regret I never met him,
for his death felt like that of a friend.
