We just saw him a few months ago in the last HOBBIT movie and he looked damn good.

He was also terrific as Milady's assassin in a small part in Richard Lester's "The Three Musketeers" film.

Are you sure he passed away? Might he come back ...? When the moon is full & bright ...?

He can be glimpsed as an extra in Olivier's HAMLET, standing in the background of the Court scene in Act One. Years later he was reunited with 2 other actors from this film --Peter Cushing & Felix Aylmer--in THE MUMMY.
