Famous Armenian Actors “Garik” and “Gokor” Killed In Tragic Accident
Aram “Garik” Miskaryan and Gegham “Gokor” Ghandilyan, two famous Armenian actors from the show “Vorogayt” were tragically killed in a car accident on Monday around midnight. The two of them were in the BMW which their cameraman, Edgar Ter-Adamyan, 26, was driving. Apparently Ter-Adamyan lost control on Echmiadzin-Armavir highway and crashed into a tree.
Both Gegham Ghandilyan, 35, and Aram Miskaryan, 36, were pronounced dead on the scene. Ter-Adamyan was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
Costar Armen Marutyan, who works at the Sundukyan State Academic Theatre of Yerevan, told Armenia Now, “‘They (Gokor and Garik) were our favorites; they were intelligent, modest, and talented. It simply should not have happened.'”
“Neither man was a professional actor. Miskaryan (“Garik”) was a sportsman, head of Armenia’s Tae Kwon Do Federation. Ghandilyan (“Gokor”) was jeweler by profession. Neither man was married nor had children.”
It is a very tragic situation that has affected thousands of Armenians around the world. The show “Vorogayt” branched off of the popular show “Vervaratsner,” both remaining very popular in both Armenia and among Armenians in the United States. People from all states bought satellites just to watch these two shows.
According to doctors, it seems as though it indeed was an accident. So here’s where I come in and say, is it really necessary to drive that fast? The driver will live with this burden on his shoulders for the rest of his life, but why should it be like that? It’s a shame to have lost such young talented lives for a few seconds of careless driving.
