Alive again now 

 

Editor left a note saying info came from his next on kin. Supposedly died in Denville Hall. News seems to be slow in coming out of there. I suspect an obit will surface in the coming week.

Wikipedia has now locked his death in. There looks like there was an obituary in The Stage but nothing elsewhere.

My word, Colin Farrell (the Northern comedy actor) turned up in the Iceland 5 Gold Rings ad! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LoO8BxfzOg

 

Was in Oh What A Lovely War, but I remember him best from In Loving Memory and Porridge.

 

He's 81, you know.

Wonder how Equity get round the fact that the original and best Colin's come out of retirement?

Another one for you @Bibliogryphon. Thanks to Talking Pictures I've seen Elizabeth Sellars in three things this past week (Three Cases of Murder, Jet Storm and now Repent at Leisure) and apparently she's still alive aged 98.


Someone has edited Elizabeth Sellars' Wikipedia page to say she died yesterday (30th).

Telegraph Obit for Beryl Calder who has died aged 93: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2020/01/09/beryl-calder-actress-became-1950s-radio-star-mrs-dales-diary/

 

Best known for playing Gwen Dale in Mrs Dale's Diary on the "wireless". Anyone here old enough to remember listening?

 

Not really, but the theme tune is burned into my brain as an early memory because my grandmother used to listen religiously to Mrs Dale's Diary.

Someone has tweeted Michael Ball to tell him that an actress he used to work with Sally Mates has passed away. She was aged roughly 76 and had appeared in quite a few shows on stage and screen including Cats Eyes, Wire in the blood, Suspects and Les Miserables on stage.

Report of the death of Gillian Martell:

Appeared several times on stage with Ian McKellen in the 1960s according to McKellen's website.

 

Plucking out my faves from her credits, they include K-9 And Company, Grange Hill, The Boy Who Won The Pools. Her last big role appears to be Diane Lewis in The Chief.

Well I could think of no other suitable thread  and this one did say bit actor also!

I wanted a specific thread not just the general one!

Good suggestion. In truth some names could arguably fall under a number of categories. 

 

Only teasing!
