Welsh actor Roger Rees dies aged 71


A truly great actor, whom I had the pleasure of seeing perform on stage in Waiting for Godot, and who’s contributions to film and television have elevated the medium, has died. He waits no more and disappears behind the curtain. No more calls, and no final bow to ease the pain of the end. Yet still may the audience applaud, and the name Roger Rees be engraved in a high and noble place.
