I en intervju med New York Post delar skaparen av succéserien från 80-talet, Par i brott, Glenn Gordon Caron med sig av en sorglig uppdatering om sin forna kollega och nära vän Bruce Willis. Som vi vet sen innan pensionerade sig Willis för några år sedan då hans hälsa satte pinnar i hjulen för en fortsatt karriär i Hollywood.

Han hade då fått svårt med att kunna komma ihåg dialoger i manus då han drabbats av den allvarliga demenssjukdomen frontallobsdemens vilket har ett snabbare sjukdomsförlopp än andra demenssjukdomar vilket oftast leder till en förtidig död för patienterna inom 5 till 8 år. Enligt Caron har sjukdomen nu gått så långt att Willis nu är icke-kommunikativ. Han har jobbat för att få ut deras gamla serie Par i brott för streaming på Hulu och han säger så här:

"I know he's really happy that the show is going to be available for people, even though he can't tell me that. When I got to spend time with him we talked about it and I know he's excited."
"The process to get 'Moonlighting' onto Hulu has taken quite a while and Bruce's disease is a progressive disease, so I was able to communicate with him, before the disease rendered him as incommunicative as he is now, about hoping to get the show back in front of people. I know it means a lot to him."

"I'm not always quite that good but I try and I do talk to him and his wife and I have a casual relationship with his three older children. I have tried very hard to stay in his life. He's an extraordinary person. The thing that makes his disease so mind-blowing is that if you've ever spent time with Bruce Willis, there is no one who had any more joie de vivre than he. He loved life and ... just adored waking up every morning and trying to live life to its fullest. So the idea that he now sees life through a screen door, if you will, makes very little sense. He's really an amazing guy."

"My sense is the first one to three minutes he knows who I am. He's not totally verbal; he used to be a voracious reader — he didn't want anyone to know that — and he's not reading now. All those language skills are no longer available to him, and yet he's still Bruce."
"When you're with him you know that he's Bruce and you're grateful that he's there, but the joie de vivre is gone."

Det är verkligen fruktansvärt att se en av våra främsta actionskådisar gå ett sådant här öde till mötes med denna hemska sjukdom.
