Actor Pat Morita, most famous for his role at Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid films, has passed away.
As some of you know, I met Pat on several occasions and attended his wedding in Honolulu. I recall one time when he called our house trying to get in touch with my mum (because she was a producer and he had been hired to star in some commericals). I answered the phone and he knew who I was (which really impressed me, because this was around that stage in puberty when everyone on the phone thought I was my mum) and we ended up chatting for a few minutes. It was pretty cool.0 People like this. Be the first!
