    Please fix the sentence structure in this article. It states, “The guest cast list in the synopsis includes the deceased Reed Diamond as Daniel Whitehall.” The way that it is written it implies that Reed Diamond is deceased. You almost gave me a heart attack.
    The sentence should read along the lines of “The guest cast list in the synopsis includes Reed Diamond as the deceased Daniel Whitehall.”
