British actor Tim Pigott-Smith, who was best known for his Bafta-winning role in 1984 TV series The Jewel in the Crown, has died aged 70. His agent described him as "one of the greatest actors of his generation". The actor was due to appear in a touring production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, with opening night in Northampton on Monday. He received Olivier and Tony Award nominations in 2014/15 for his lead role in the play King Charles III. He was also made an OBE in the 2017 New Year Honours list for his services to drama.

"It is with deep regret that I have to announce the sad news that Tim Pigott-Smith died this morning," his agent John Grant said. "Much-loved and admired by his peers, he will be remembered by many as a gentleman and a true friend. He will be much missed. We ask that you respect the privacy of his wife, the actress Pamela Miles, his son Tom and the family." Pigott-Smith was originally meant to appear as Willy Loman in Death of a Salesman opposite Miles. However she pulled out of the production earlier this week when she broke a bone during rehearsals and needed surgery. The play was due to tour in Cambridge, Exeter and Oxford until July.

Born in Rugby, Warwickshire, Pigott-Smith trained as an actor at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. He appeared in numerous Shakespearean stage productions before his big break in ITV's The Jewel in the Crown, about the final days of the British Raj in India. Starring as police superintendent Ronald Merrick, his performance saw him beat co-stars Charles Dance and Art Malik to win a best actor Bafta in 1985.

In a diverse career, his other TV credits include roles in The Vice, Bloody Sunday, Downton Abbey and Doctor Who. On the big screen he notably appeared in Clash of the Titans, V for Vendetta and James Bond film Quantum of Solace. According to IMDB, the actor was also currently working on a TV film version of King Charles III, which imagines Prince Charles's succession to throne following the death of the Queen.
It says that he appeared in Clash of the Titans. Can I ask, what character did he play? I've seen both films (both old and new) loads of times, but can't quite place his face in it?

He played Thallo. Below is an extract from the synopsis.

"Perseus befriends Thallo (Tim Pigott-Smith) and presents himself as suitor and correctly answers the riddle, presenting the severed hand of Calibos. Perseus wins Andromeda's hand in marriage. Finding that Thetis cannot act against Perseus, Calibos instead demands that she take vengeance on Joppa. At the wedding, Queen Cassiopeia compares Andromeda's beauty to that of Thetis herself, whereupon Thetis demands Andromeda be sacrificed to the Kraken on pain of Joppa's destruction."

Unhappy



The BBC are reporting (for the second time) that the Radio 2 DJ, Brian Matthew has died, at the age of 88.

Brian presented a 2 hour show on Saturday mornings called "Sounds of the 60's", which I always woke up to, and listened to as I got ready and drove to the super market, his style was to give a little information about each song, then play it in full, he never talked over a song, nor cut it short, he acknowledged that the music, not the presenter was the star of the show.

The BBC sacked him earlier this year, even though they said it was a mutual decision. (Brian rejected their statement)

In my opinion he was by far the best DJ the BBC ever had, and a lot of radio presenters could learn valuable lessons from him (yes Steve Wright, I'm looking at you)

R.I.P, Brian.

He was also the bastard who killed Lady Sybil in Downton Abbey. BOO! HISS!

Probably the most recognisable BBC voice worldwide owing to his announcing duties on umpteen "Live At The Beeb" releases including The Beatles, Zeppelin, Hendrix and almost everybody else who ever mattered.

Another bit of my childhood gone. Long before "Sounds of the 60s" he presented "Saturday Club" which is where you first got to hear that new record by the Beatles, Kinks, Stones etc. On TV, he presented "Thank Your Lucky Stars" - another ground-breaking show that featured audience member Janice who often uttered the much copied phrase "Oi'll give it foive", spoken in her strong midlands accent.

RIP that gentleman.

Terrible news about John.

I will have to watch the whole series of The Games again in his memory.

Along with a truckload of other stuff.
