On logging on to my lap-top just a minute ago, I read with real sadness, that one of my favourite actors has just died. He was such a hugely talented man, not good-looking or particularly elegant or gracefull, just simply a truly wonderful artist and with so many facets to his artistry. Particularly memorable for me was his wonderful portrayal of the 'barmy' sergeant in "Sharpe". I'll never forget his 'talking to' his mother in his hat!
What a huge loss and so young too.
God Bless you Pete Postlethwaite.
