Troubled actor believes someone is trying to kill him
Actor Randy Quaid is seeking asylum in Canada over fears his life is in danger from an organisation he says aims to kill Hollywood celebrities.
He and his wife Evie were arrested in Vancouver recently over allegations that they squatted in their former California home.
Now the pair are trying to stay in the country after fearing they are being targeted by “Hollywood star whackers” – a group of people Quaid believes are responsible for the death of Heath Ledger, David Carradine and others – reports the Daily Mirror.
Evie Quaid told officials at the Immigration And Refugee Board Of Canada: “We feel our lives are in danger. Randy has known eight close friends murdered in odd, strange manners. We feel that we’re next.”
The pair’s lawyer said, “Yes, we are seeking asylum from Hollywood star whackers.”
Quaid, who has appeared in films including the National Lampoon series and Independence Day, worked with Ledger on Brokeback Mountain.
Ledger died in 2008 from an accidental overdose, while Carradine died from asphyxiation in 2009.
Quaid actor and his family are set to attend a second immigration hearing on Thursday (October 28).
