    British Character Actors

    Bruce Bould was CJ's 'Super' man, surprised he died off radar. Christopher Reich was the main one I'd heard of instantly. Had a long theatre career, appeared in Bergerac, Pink Panther and lots of other stuff. Sorry to hear this.

    I don't think it's particularly fair to have, say, Variety as a standalone QO, because that's a website that covers a specific field of interest. It's like including Autosport.com or Cricinfo etc.

    Dowson was utterly clueless. Wilkinson a big step up. I'll definitely have to take part in next season's pool.

    Oldest Living football league players

    A recent report on Eric Doughty confirms he is still very well, but also that he is Plymouth's 2nd oldest living player, behind someone (who for some reason) I had down as deceased - Neil Langman (WIki - Wiki More indepth guide) is still alive. So he's been added. Doughty posts However, it's not all good news. Former Watford player Dennis Maskell died last month, https://www.watfordfc.com/news/tribute-dennis-maskell-1933-2024 EDIT - actually died 20th January https://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/memorials/death-notices/death/30595831.dennis-danny-maskell/

    Cross threading to say that Joan Freeman is not only not dead, but looking at the last photo in this link, looks pretty well. https://www.soundingsonline.com/news/adventurer-bruce-kessler-dies-at-88 She has just lost her husband of near 60 years mind, which sometimes takes a toll.

    The Chequered Flag

    Could've put this in the sailing thread, or the Hollywood Possibilities thread, amongst others, but ultimately he was a Grand Prix driver (briefly). Bruce Kessler has died at the age of 88. A long life, well lived. https://www.soundingsonline.com/news/adventurer-bruce-kessler-dies-at-88 As well as directing four Hollywood movies, he was one of the last people to see James Dean alive and his wife was actress Joan Freeman (who looks well in the last picture on the link)
