"I wouldn’t inflict my naked body on any paying audience"
Richard Griffiths (1947-2013)
Just a quick word on one of Blighty’s finest sons. Richard Griffiths, actor and all around British gentleman, passed away due to complications whilst undergoing heart surgery last night. He was part of numerous cinematic and theatrical outings, most famously as two uncles- Vernon in the Harry Potter films, and Monty in Withnail and I.
Never one to avoid making fun of himself, or anyone else for that matter, Griffiths represented so much of what was right about the British school of acting, a man both literally and figuratively larger than life. What a class act.
