According to media reports, television actor Johnny Palermo died June 8 in a fatal car accident. Palermo, 27, and girlfriend Alessandra Giangrande, who was driving at the time, were both killed in an early morning crash in North Hollywood. Giangrande’s brother, also a passenger, survived the crash, but suffered serious injuries.
The Palermo had a short but substantial career, appearing in such hit shows as “Everybody Hates Chris,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “CSI: Miami,” and the Nickelodeon series “Just for Kicks.” The cause of the crash has not been determined. It is a sad turn of events. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the deceased.
