Loved his over the top character Obadiah Hakeswill in Sharpe.
Speilberg described him as "the best actor in the world"
One of his replies was he thought it "sounded like an advert for lager"
Sad times, great actor whether it be on small screen drama or silver screen hollywood blockbusters.
Personally my favourite role that I can think of just now was as the priest in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet though I'm sure there are many more I will remember as the tributes start rolling on telly.
