Matrix: The Oracle Dies

First Aaliyah, now this… maybe “The Matrix: Reloaded” just isn’t meant to be. Gloria Foster, the actress who played the enigmatic, cookie-baking Oracle in “The Matrix” died last weekend. Most of her scenes for the second movie had already been completed, according to The
Wire
, but not those for the third movie.

    I would have appreciated it if this bit of information had been treated as a spoiler. As soon as I saw the title, it was too late.

      The only story spoiler involved is that the Oracle was in the scripts for parts 2 and 3. A more precise title would have been “Gloria Foster, who played the Oracle in ‘The Matrix,’ is dead” but that would have been rather long, which is why (I assume) Dave pared it down a bit.

      I didn’t think that the fact that her character would simply be in the movie would be spoiling anything. My apologies, though.

        Thanks. My comment wasn’t meant to be a big deal — just a suggestion that you can use or discard as you wish.
