Awright, Dave?

We bid a sad farewell to the eternal "character actor" Roger Lloyd-Pack, best known to millions as "Trigger" in one of Britain's longest-serving comedies Only Fools And Horses, who died today.

Real-life dad to the actress Emily Lloyd and on-screen dad to David Tennant in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, he had a long stage as well as TV and movie career - I saw him as "Sarah the Cook" in the Mark Ravenhill panto Dick Whittington in 2007, but he cemented his acting credentials in latter years in Shakespeare productions at The Globe Theatre.

However, he will forever be immortalised as a nice-but-dim roadsweeper...


Roger Lloyd-Pack (8th February 1944 – 15th January 2014)
