Actor Randy Quaid And Wife Seek Refugee Status In Canada; Fear They’ll Be Killed In U.S.
Randy Quaid and wife and wife Evi are seeking refugee status Canada, saying they’ve been persecuted by authorities in the United States for twenty years.
The Quaids told the hearing Friday that eight of their close friends had been killed in recent years and they now felt endangered themselves.
Evi Quaid said friends such as actors David Carradine and Heath Ledger were “murdered” under mysterious circumstances and she’s worried something will happen to her husband.
“We feel our lives are in danger,” she said.
Heath Ledger died of an overdose in 2008. Carradine hanged himself in Thailand in 2009. The Quaids believe they were killed by the United States government.
The Quaids are facing felony burglary charges and misdemeanour counts in the U.S. for allegedly moving back into and vandalizing a home they once owned in Santa Barbara, Calif. Both are wanted on $500,000 bench warrants issued by judge Donna Geck in Santa Barbara.
Randy Quaid won a Golden Globe Award and was nominated for an Emmy for his portrayal of U.S. President Lyndon Johnson in LBJ: The Early Years, but he’s perhaps best known for his roles in the National Lampoon’s Vacation movies as well as Brokeback Mountain and Independence Day.Click here for reuse options!
