French television star Igor Bogdanov died at the age of 72 after capturing COVID-19. Only six days after his twin brother Glishka died of the virus.
In a statement released by his agent, the family said:
He is survived by his ex-wife, writer Amelie de Bourbon Palme and their six children.
According to some reports, Gritika was hospitalized on December 18. Others, both brothers were hospitalized early last month.
The Bogdanov brothers became famous in the 1980s as the host of a series of science fiction and science fiction television shows.
Between 1979 and 1989, they announced Temps X (Time X), a show responsible for introducing the Twilight Zone, Star Trek, Doctor Who and other series to the French audience.
Igor holds a PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Burgundy.
The twins published physics papers in the early 2000s, but their academic research was questioned.
In 2002, another physicist accused them of publishing a “parody” composed of meaningless jargon.
The brothers consistently denied that their striking facial features were due to plastic surgery, arguing that their common appearance was natural.
Both twins were not vaccinated, according to a report in the French newspaper Le Monde.
Luc Ferry, a professor of philosophy, a former minister of education and a friend of both brothers, told the paper:
“They believed the vaccine was more dangerous because they lacked a gram of fat and were very athletic. They never got sick.”
