Always like Sir Ian's version of Napoleon in Time Bandits, obsessed with his height. But a great supporting actor, and I mean no denigration by that, he preferred to work in ensembles and I don't think he ever had a lead in a film, unlike his stage performances. Also Frodo Baggins in the Radio 4 Lord of the Rings. Very troubled man, apparently, I was sad to read, but a superb actor.

He also has the best line in Alien, wonderfully delivered.

The last of the Kennedy siblings has died, aged 92.

I think it's fair to say Jean Kennedy Smith lived a long and interesting life, even playing a role in the Northern Ireland peace process. She lost one brother in the war, two to assassinations and a sister was institutionalised and lobotomised, so while she was from a wealthy, influential family it wasn't always a smooth ride.

And Holmsy made a great head on a table as Ash in Alien....
Saw Alien on its first cinema release. I somehow missed the fact that Ash was a robot thing. So when his head was wired up and he started talking I thought he'd been resurrected from yer actual dead.
It horrified me and stayed with me until I found out what was really going on!
