Mourning for George P. Wilbur (1941-2023): The US actor and stuntman, known for his portrayal of Michael Myers in several “Halloween” films, has died. He was 81 years old.

Christopher Durand, also a stuntman in the “Halloween” franchise, announced his death on Facebook on Thursday (February 2), according to the British “Mirror”. “George P. Wilbur passed away last night. George, you were just amazing and loved a lot. We will miss you very much.”

George P. Wilbur began his film career in 1966 with an extra role in “El Dorado”. In “Halloween IV – Michael Myers Returns” (1988) and “Halloween VI – The Curse of Michael Myers” (1995) he embodied the famous antagonist.
