Karl Shiels  Peaky Blinders And Batman Begins Actor, Aged 47

RIP Karl, and condolences to his family, friends and colleagues - including the forum member who worked with him.

47, ffs.

He hadn't been great for a while, the poor sod.

Judith Kerr, 95, writer of The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

They just showed the rather lovely IMAGINE documentary about her on BBC 1 so it will probably be available on IPlayer. Well worth a watch.  Two lines stand out

My friend for last nearly 30 years, from school, just killed himself this morning. I was shocked about it, I dont see him for few years, but he looks fine on his Instagram last few weeks. Found out he was in depression.

He is Deaf, and sadly in last 5 weeks, 6 Deaf men killed themselves.

Many problems as lack of communication and long waiting list for mental support.

So angry and sad about it.

So sorry to hear that, Goaty. The death of a friend is always hard but suicide is something else altogether.

My deepest sympathies to you and your friend's family.

Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Aw, man. Really sorry to hear that. Thoughts are with you and others close to him.

Shit, Goaty that's so sad.  There's very little tougher than losing someone to suicide. My thoughts are with you and yours, and your mate's family and friends.

Rutger Hauer, 75
Incredibly sad news. Hauer had some incredibly memorable parts and was underrated as an actor in my opinion. The rain can't hide my tears over this.

RIP :cry:

It's regrettable news about Rutger Hauer. 'I've done questionable things...but extraordinary things. Revel in your time.' Ah, Hobo with a shotgun and Split Second must be the 'questionable things' but his Roy Batty in Bladerunner is one of the best Villains/anti-heroes ever.

I forgot about those!

Sad to learn of Rutger Haur's death. And 75 years isn't so old nowadays.

I guess my favourite role with him was Roy Batty in Blade Runner. I really enjoyed Blind Fury too.
