    RIP Richard Griffiths

    Very sad to hear that actor, Richard Griffiths, has passed away. RIP. He played Uncle Vernon in the Harry Potter movies and Uncle Monty in Withnail & I. He was only 65, and apparently died after complications set in following heart surgery.

    As Uncle Vernon in the Harry Potter films, he was famous for the catchphrases: 'I'm warning you' and 'justice!', and for pointing out that there is no post on a Sunday.

    As well as his roles in the Harry Potter films and in Withnail & I, he also starred in Pie in the Sky (P2, P3, P4) and The History Boys.

    Wow. I'm so sad to hear that. He also was an excellent stage actor, winning a Tony and Olivier award for The History Boys.

    I was really looking forward to seeing him in a play in October. I bought tickets yesterday.

    Aw, that is sad.

    I was lucky enough to see him in a play in London a couple of years ago, he really had a great command of the stage. And of course he was fabulous in all his film & tv work.

    RIP.

    RIP Richard
    I was fortunate enough to see him on stage in London last year - he and Danny Devito were appearing in "The Sunshine Boys" and I snagged a really cheap seat in the front row. I hadn't realized he was actually younger than Danny.
    Can't skate but love to watch
