Obituary: Mickey Hays

Click to follow
Mickey Hays, died Longview Texas 30 June, aged 20. One of the longest survivors of progeria - an aging disorder of which only 20 cases are known world-wide; few sufferers reach their teens. Played a space alien in the 1985 film The Aurora Encounter - his wrinkled skin, wispy hair and 3ft stature suited him for the part.
