Aaliyah (Aaliyah Dana Haughton 1979-2001)

 

  1. Regina Hall, Scary Movie, 1999.    She passed on Brenda in the raucous horror satire partly based on the Wayans brothers’ all-embracing  1998 script,… Last Summer I Screamed Because Halloween Fell On Friday The 13th.  

  2. Zoe Saldana, Get Over It, 2000.     The singer-actress was first seen forthe role of Maggie in A Midsummer Night’s Dream in high school -Zoe’s second movie.

  3. Nona Gaye, The Matrix Reloaded, 2003; The Matrix Revolutions, 2003.      Following her air-crash death. Aaliyah’s fans petitioned the film's creators, the Wachowski siblings (then brothers, now sisters), to keep her scenes. Impossible! She had not shot any. Her replacement was her friend, Marvin Gaye's daughter, another R&B singer, who’d debuted as the second wife of The Greatest in Ali, 2001.
  4. Jordin Sparks, Sparkle, 2011.     This was to be Witney Houston’s comeback... She had won the rights in 1999 and asked Aaliyah to play her daughter - one of three forming a singing group. After Aaliyah’s shock death, all interest in the project - and, indeed, in Houston - faded for a dozen years. “Jo Jo” beat Raven-Symoné to Sparkle. Houston died in 2012, after completing the film and singing Celebrate (with the debuting Sparks) for the end credits.
