Oh! I have seen him in a couple of plays and he was always so great. Very sad news.

Very sad news.

Saw him at the theatre when he was in Equus - great actor.

Also be remembered for other parts such as the mad bishop in Vicar of Dibley and Pie In The Sky.

RIP Richard.

A versatile actor and one of the profession's nice guys - I don't think anyone has ever had a bad word to say about him. Quite a shock. He will be greatly missed.

RIP Uncle Monty

That is sad news - I've never seen the HP movies but loved him in 'Pie in The Sky'.

I agree.

RIP to a great actor and a familiar face in TV/film.

dodger0703 29-03-2013 10:35

One of those actors who you knew you could rely on, always made me smile. Not been mentioned but he was great in The Naked Gun 2 1/2

Agent Krycek 29-03-2013 10:35

Very sad news. We've lost some great actors this year.

Keyser Soze 29-03-2013 10:40

Sad, sad news. :(

I once saw Richard at a train station, he was getting off a train from Cumbria, so I felt I'd had a proper Withnail celeb spot.

A really good actor, but someone who ultimately ate himself to death.
