8 Actors From The “Home Alone” Movies Who Are Gone But Not Forgotten

The topic of which Christmas movie is the most iconic is debatable, but for many, “Home Alone” is the ultimate holiday classic. The cast, featuring Macaulay Culkin, Catherine O’Hara, and Joe Pesci, has continued to captivate audiences since 1990. But despite all the joy the film brings, it’s bittersweet as some actors have sadly passed away over the years. What’s even sadder is that many people straight-up forgot about them. But that’s okay because we’re here to keep the memory of them alive.

1. Bill Erwin Airplane passenger (“Home Alone”)

After realizing she left Kev all alone, Kate McCallister did everything she could to go back to her son, including trying to convince Bill Erwin’s character and his wife to sell her their tickets. It was a brief but memorable moment in the movie. Fortunately, Erwin lived a long and fulfilling life, but all good things must come to an end, and on December 29, 2010, Erwin died from natural causes at 96.

2. Billie Bird Airplane passenger (“Home Alone”)

Billie played the wife of Erwin’s character, and just like Erwin, she lived a very long and happy life. Unfortunately, unlike her on-screen husband, she did not die of old age. Alzheimer’s disease took her away at the age of 96.

3. Roberts Blossom Marley (“Home Alone”)

Blossom’s character, the Old Cryypy Man, initially comes across as mysterious and somewhat frightening to the audience, but as the story progresses, it becomes clear that he is just misunderstood. In fact, his character’s relationship with Kevin was a touching reminder to never judge someone based on rumors or appearances. Sadly, Roberts passed away in 2011 at the age of 87 due to natural causes, but the character of “Old Man” Marley will always be a poignant reminder of how important empathy and understanding are in our lives.
