Harry Potter's Uncle Vernon has passed away. Can't Post

RIP, Richard Griffiths: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/...19&objectid=10874447

No-one could talk in quite the same way about vegetables!

The carrot has mystery...

One by one they faded, and fell into shadow...

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

Truly sad [In reply to] Can't Post

And by today's standards he didn't live to be old either.

I've never been a fan of Harry Potter personally, but I remember enjoying his character very much in the earlier films which I did watch. I also liked his brief but memorable cameo as King George in the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean installment.

RIP, a sad day indeed.

I too enjoyed Pie in the Sky [In reply to] Can't Post

I enjoyed the storylines, but I also appreciated a bigger person having a lead role.

I thought Richard Griffiths was excellent - but when I also saw him as Uncle Vernon I realised just how good he was.

Fondly remembered on screen, sadly missed.

One of my goals in life is to ensure [In reply to] Can't Post

that every person has seen Withnail and I. More than once.
In fact, I demand that you see it!

Do watch it if you can [In reply to] Can't Post

It's a gently paced detective series that's very well acted.

Happy Easter to you!Smile

His guest starring role on Vicar of Dibley was a show stealer [In reply to] Can't Post

He was so incredibly quirky and very un-Dursley-like in a memorable and hilarious performance which proved how talented he was. Very sad.

I don't think I would have liked it [In reply to] Can't Post

when it originally screened on TV, but I have a feeling I would like it now. I will definitely check it out.
Happy Easter to you, too. Smile
I hope you are enjoying the amazing weather. I spent all day in the garden and it was lovely.
