Celebrity deaths in 2020, from Max von Sydow to Caroline Flack – The Independent

From Monty Python legend Terry Jones to Hollywood star Kirk Douglas, we remember some of the notable figures from the arts world who died in 2020. 

Although no longer with us, their work will still be remembered, revisited and loved for many years to come – whether they were actors, musicians, poets or painters.  

January saw the death of Most Haunted presenter, the TV medium Derek Acorah, and American writer and journalist Elizabeth Wurtzel.
