David Carradine's legacy
David Carradine RIP
I was wondering if anyone read or saw David Carradine in a 2004 interview where he allegedly talked about suicide.
According to reports during a 2004 interview, Carradine admitted he had contemplated suicide, including once while staying in a hotel. "I remember one time sitting in the window of the third or fourth floor of the Plaza Hotel for about an hour, thinking about just tipping off," he said. "And that was at a time when I was having more fun than you could imagine. I just thought, 'who the ---- cares, man? Why don't I just split?' Of course I didn't, so there you go." A hotel worker check on him and his body was discovered.
I was not a huge fan but I think it is very sad that his life ended in such a "mysterious" way, but friends say that’s the way Carradine would have liked it. He always like to keep people guessing. RIP
