    Yeah, always seemed like a decent guy and played up to type whenever in public. Had a good innings though.

    Yeah 95 is really good. Funny how a lot of the older actors last like that. Sir John Mills had a long innings too iirc. Great actors.

    Simon MacCorkindale. T'was a little bit hammy, but was particularly excellent during his time on Casualty in my opinion.

    RIP also Big Malcolm Allison. A man for whom "larger than life" could've been coined.

    Very strange situation, there. You'd have to hope it was natural causes or, in the case of Katsidis, that it might be an accidental overdose (he had known drug issues), because he had turned his life around in the last couple of years and had a live Cox Plate chance (maybe only a place chance behind So You Think) in the John Wallace-trained Shoot Out this Saturday.

    He's my age.
