Goodbye Ian

Wendy and I were sad at the sudden-death of Ian Richardson, who was well known for his role as scheming chief whip Francis Urquhart in the BBC TV series 'House of Cards'.

He died unexpectedly aged 72 with his final performance as the voice of Death in the TV adaptation of my old friend Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather shown on Sky at Christmas.

Ian was a true gentleman and I last photographed him in September 2005 at Bath Theatre Royal.

As you can see from the picture he was always keen to help, even holding the reflector for the photographers to photograph his Co-Star.

As Wendy is a great fan of House of cards I dropped a picture back for to him to sign for her.

To her surprise he took it to her work and delivered it in person, he then posted us a handwritten note of thanks for the prints I sent him.
