Who Died Today: Mako Iwamatsu
DOB: December 10, 1933
Passed Away: July 21, 2006
Japanese born, grew up in the US, Mako developed a passion for acting while he was enrolled in the US Army. From there he studied acting and ended up doing a lot of roles in theater, TV and movies. He ended up getting nominated for an Oscar for a role he did in The Sand Pebbles. He worked steadily in film and TV since then.
“Last week, Mark Sloan succumbed to injuries sustained in the plane crash that took the life of fellow surgeon Alexandra Caroline Grey. By the time he died, he was no longer just a hot naked guy in a towel. He’d become more than McSteamy. Mark had grown to become a mentor, a true best friend, a father, and the love of Lexie Grey’s life. After six seasons, the end of Mark Sloan was a great loss for me as a writer and for the show. And for the fans. I like to believe that Mark is with Lexie somewhere. That those two characters are spending eternity together, getting to have the relationship they were never able to have when they were alive. Because, as Lexie’s dying words told us, she and Mark were “meant to be.” Mark Everett Sloan died on September 27, 2012. He is survived by his daughter Sofia; his baby mamas, Callie and Arizona; his fellow doctors at Seattle Grace; and every woman who ever imagined what it might be like to have a little McSteamy between her sheets. He will be missed by all.”—
