Our Uncle Monty died yesterday, Thursday March 28th, from complications following heart surgery, according to The Guardian (the article has some lovely quotes about him by Daniel Radcliffe btw).
He was 65.
I was so sad to hear it. I remember him from Withnail and I, Harry Potter, Pie in the Sky, The History Boys... he was wonderful.
I thought I'd reproduce the tributes to him that I've come across on twitter, by REG, Paul McGann and Tom Hiddleston. They're better with words than I am. (:
