Gone But Not Forgotten

OnFilm Magazine
(New Zealand)

March 2007


 "Gone But Not Forgotten," in which several of Kevin's colleagues--Michael Hurst, Joel Tobeck, Kevin Sorbo, Lucy Lawless, Oliver Driver, Zoe Bell--write about him on the fifth anniversary of his death. 

Lucy writes:

"I think of Kev often, I remember his sage words about singing:  Sometimes you are so good and it's so easy, it's not real . . . just a trick.

He never appeared to take himself too seriously, though I think deep down he knew he was capable of far greater achievements than publicly known.  His friends and colleagues knew it and we were shocked when his life was cut short.  I feel he was recalled from active duty somehow.

I hope his sons will always feel their dad's presence in their life and Sue will always feel his support.  Boy, it can't be easy.

The Kevin Smith Trust is a way that Kevin's friends and fans can express to his family how much he gave to them.  We are really proud and grateful to all those who have contributed over the years.

Good work, Kev.
