I'm going to be enjoying a good wine and a hearty meal this evening in honour of Mr Griffiths. No prizes for guessing what the viewing will be. I miss him already.

A sad and shocking piece of news to wake up to. I was listening to his Desert Isand Dscs the other day and it made me love and respect him even more, what a wonderful storyteller. I like many others will be watching 'the film' later.

As lots of people have already stated here, today we have lost a brilliant actor, and by all accounts a thoroughly lovely man. R.I.P. Richard, you will always be missed. "All the glorious trials of youth, dear boy"
The only program I'm likely to get on is the fucking news.

Such sad news.

would it be in bad taste to plagiarise a toast? !!

took my daughter to the lakes today for a weekend camping and we were doing the lines about a delightful weekend in the country! when we put the radio on and heard the news, chin chin old chap, you were a unique and talented man and excelled in everything you did.

james corden told a great story about him in his tribute, when they did the history boys, corden kept asking for anecdotes about making withnail and i, and he wanted griffiths to do some of montys lines, but griffiths wouldnt. anyhow, one night on broadway they were doing the history boys when corden slipped up on stage and said his lines early cutting off 2 of grifiths lines, the show went on and nobody commented, but corden knew that griffiths was a perfectionist so he rushed to his dressing room to apologise, after he had said sorry for the slip up, griffiths walked up to him, put his hands on his shoulder, leaned in close and in his monty voice said the line 'im preparing myself to forgive you,,,' corden said he felt priveleged to have been there and will miss him terribly.
and if you havent seen it, i implore you to get the history boys on dvd, its a rare thing in that every single actor in it makes a perfect performance, not surprising really as they had spent 4 years performing the play with the same cast having done it over 500 times, so it was pretty well rehearsed !!! griffiths essentially plays an older predatory homosexual with an unhealthy interest in young men! ring any bells!!
