Raúl Juliá in 1994
Puerto Rican actor Raúl Juliá was a star on the stage, earning four Tony Award nominations over the course of his career. He reprised his Addams Family role in 1993's sequel, Addams Family Values. When he made the jump to television, he played Brazilian activist Chico Mendes in The Burning Season for HBO. In 1994, he starred in Street Fighter, an adaptation of a popular video game franchise.
Sadly, this would be Juliá's last film role. In October 1994, he suffered a stroke and died a few days later. His The Burning Season performance earned him a posthumous Golden Globe and Emmy. His legacy lives on, however, in several awards and even a school named in his honor.
