Bernard Cribbins (1928-222) I love this man. I love him. Thats him as Snout in A Midsummer Nights Dream. Dyou fancy doing some Shakespeare, Bernard? Let me see the script. He knew everyone! Hed talk about the Beatles and David Niven, and how he once sat on the stairs at a party impersonating bird calls with T H White. Then hed add, I said to Ashley Banjo last week He loved being in Doctor Who. He said, Children are calling me grandad in the street! His first day was on location with Kylie Minogue, but all eyes, even Kylies, were on Bernard. Hed turned up with a suitcase full of props, just in case, including a rubber chicken. And what an actor. Oh, really though, what a wonderful actor. We once took him to the TV Choice Awards and sent him up on his own to collect the award, and the entire room stood up and cheered him. Thats a lovely memory. Hed phone up and say, Ive got an idea! What if I attack a Dalek with a paintball gun?! Okay, Bernard, in it went! He loved Gill with all his heart; he mentioned her in every conversation we ever had. A love story for the ages. Im so lucky to have known him. Thanks for everything, my old soldier. A legend has left the world.br>
