I must admit he looked significantly older and frailer in The Crown but I put that down to not seeing him in as much recently. Very sad news,terrific actor.

Regarding Ronald Pickup, I just saw his first role was in Dr Who's The Reign of Terror playing the physician. Also one of the growing number of cast members to depart who were in Zulu Dawn.

 

Very impressive list of credits all round really.  RIP

My generation will know him better as a storyteller on Jackanory.

He was fucking brilliant, made the written word come to life.

Only Martin Jarvis is in that league.

Younger than Terrance Hardiman. And Leslie Phillips is still alive. Vast body of work. Sad loss

Just had a look at his IMDb. He's American, and whilst I don't think you have to be British-born to be considered a "British television actor", appearing in only one or two series of British TV shows is a bit of a stretch for inclusion. Trying not to pull up an exhaustive list as it defeats the purpose.

Updated list again to include someone we overlooked – James Martin, who played Eric in Still Game.

Turns 90 in a fortnight, so as I'm likely to forget, many happy returns to him for then! :birthday2:

Updated list again to include someone we overlooked – James Martin, who played Eric in Still Game.

Turns 90 in a fortnight, so as I'm likely to forget, many happy returns to him for then! :birthday2:

Yeah alright Mr. Pedantic. 

Well the list I compiled is a generic one of British television actors over 90, including character actors and sitcom actors. But there isn't a general thread for British television, so in here it went! :)

I did look at the rest of the impressive list and it is often unfair to categorise actors by genre. I mean you list Patricia Routledge and link her with Keeping Up Appearances but she has been a member of the RSC and done many things like Hetty Winthrop

Quite right, I was surprised by Hugh Grant's acting ability when he got away from being typecast.

Theatre is one of the areas where my knowledge is terribly poor. Must confess I didn't know Routledge had a prominent stage career until the other day.

When I posted about American Hollywood Golden era actress Patricia Marmont dying off radar in December, I subsequently read that after her owning acting career, she became the theatrical agent for Kenneth Branagh and Patricia Routledge!

Harry Fielder was 'The King of the Extras'. It would probably be easier to list what he didn't appear in throughout the 60s and 70s and beyond.

http://www.harryfielder.co.uk/

His coffin will be carried by non speaking extras, the music will be via the performing rights society and the vicar will only be allowed to say a few words but get paid more.

RIP legend.

Come on then, own up!!!

On the superb familiar unknown blogspot.com....

 

Harry 'Aitch' Fielder:

† April 26 1940 – February 6 2021

King of the Extras, Harry Fielder has died. A legendary supporting player in the British film and television industries, it's almost easier to list which classic productions he doesn't appear in.

I always thought it was Anubis himself who ran it, rather than a 'mate' of his. I don't know why.

Go easy Paul, it just might not have occurred to dvsp that the death of Johnny Briggs, off of 30 years starring in a soap, would’ve been reported in the Soapstar thread.
