One of his most recent projects was The Orchestra, who have been touring the world for the last 20 years or so and my friend has been their sound engineer.

Just read that actor Yaphet Kotto has died. Best known for his poles as Bond villain, Dr Kananga in Live and Let Die and as engineer Parker in Alien.


The link from The BBC will not copy for some reason but in it he says he turned down a role in The Empire Strikes Back to avoid being typecast and also turned down the role of Captain Jean Luc Picard. :shock:

Oscar-nominated actor George Segal has died, aged 87

The American actor found fame after starring in the 1966 movie Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and went on to achieve a decades-long career in film and television. Tributes are pouring in for Segal after his wife confirmed he died on Tuesday morning due to complications from bypass surgery.

I have just seen the news. I feel really sad for Queen Elizabeth. Despite anything anyone says about her, I think she was and is still a lovely person. May Phillip RIP. Peace and comfort to the whole family in their time of sorrow. 😥 💔

People on twitter, Americans, apparently, are being horrible. I apologize for my country's behavior. Shameful!
