Very saddened by this , an excellent actor and one who always seemed to be on our screens 

His IMDB page takes a lot of scrolling to get to the bottom.

Closer to home, they are dropping like flies.  Lost my sister  6 months ago (non-Covid, Parkinsons, late onset MS etc) , former work colleague a year ago (ill but Covid saw him off) plus several others. I guess its age-group related. Once you get to your 70s, there are many fewer years ahead than behind, and more Sympathy cards than Christmas cards. Can't change that, but to see some leaving us at a much earlier age is such a shame. Carpe Diem, everyone and yes, that means YOU!

The problem with being punctual is that there is no one there to appreciate it.

Michael Gudinski, founder of Mushroom Records, aged 68. This will resonate more with our Australian/Kiwi members.

"I am the avenging angel; I come with wings unfurled, I come with claws extended from halfway round the world. I am the God Almighty, I am the howling wind. I care not for your family; I care not for your kin. I come in search of terror, though terror is my own; I come in search of vengeance for crimes and crimes unknown. I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"
