Connelly talks of Bowie's impact on her 5-year-old daughter

Jennifer Connelly has paid tribute to David Bowie in a ‘Labyrinth’ 30th anniversary Blu-ray extra.

Connelly starred as teenager Sarah, alongside David Bowie in the fantasy film, directed by Jim Henson and released in 1986.

During the interview on the 30th anniversary Blu-ray, Connelly speaks of how Bowie has influenced her 5-year-old daughter. She recalls how her daughter says, “isn’t it sad David won’t be able to make any more music for us to listen to?”

Continuing, she says, “We went to Notre Dame, and we were lighting candles for people. I asked Agnes, who do you want to light a candle for? She said, ‘I want to light a candle for David Bowie.’ [Laughs] So there you go.”

Meanwhile, a plaque dedicated to David Bowie has been stolen in Berlin just three weeks after its unveiling.

The memorial plaque – which quoted the late musician’s lyrics from his hit ‘Heroes’: “We can be heroes, just for one day” – was unveiled by the city’s mayor last month at his former home from 1976 to 1978.

German newspaper BZ reports that the act of vandalism and theft took place on Saturday and that police are now investigating the crime. It is also noted that the company that produced the plaque had multiple prints made in the event of damage or theft.

Additional photos have suggested that the plaque smashed upon being removed.
