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.

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

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.
