    The first I had heard about this. A sad loss indeed. He gave many wonderful performances, and always came across as a real gentleman in interviews. At least he leaves a great legacy behind.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      I find myself sadder about this loss than any of the losses last year. I remember him from so early on and he was so very, very good and versatile. I once had lunch with some friends and he was one of the guests. I fell instantly in love! He was such amusing company.

        Great memories for you, Sarah. I know what you mean about him, even though I was never lucky enough to have met him.
        He was around for so long, and I still remember him as Caligula in ‘I Claudius’, let alone his later roles. I just hope that he isn’t always referred to as ‘The actor who was in Harry Potter’. That makes me grit my teeth…x
