Since I know nero is a fan, Keeping up Apperances star Clive Swift dies aged 82...
Actor Clive Swift, known to millions as Hyacinth Bucket's hen-pecked husband Richard in BBC One's 90s sitcom Keeping Up Appearances, has died aged 82.

Swift, who spent 10 years at the RSC before breaking into television, also acted in such series as Peak Practice, Born and Bred and The Old Guys.

He spent six years playing Richard opposite Dame Patricia Routledge.

The role saw him patiently tolerate her ham-fisted and invariably thwarted attempts at social climbing.

Off-screen he co-founded The Actors Centre, a meeting place for members of his profession in central London.

Born in Liverpool in 1936, he had three children with his ex-wife, the novelist Margaret Drabble.

Swift's many roles included a part in Alfred Hitchcock's 1972 film Frenzy and as King Arthur's adopted father in 1981 film Excalibur.

Many years later, he would play Hitchcock in a BBC radio play called Strangers on a Film.

Swift made a number of appearances in Doctor Who, most recently in the 2007 episode Voyage of the Damned.

According to his agent, the actor died at his home on Friday after a short illness, surrounded by his family.

Swiss actor Bruno Ganz who played Hitler in the movie Downfall dies aged 77...
Bruno Ganz, who played Hitler in the 2004 film Downfall, has died aged 77.

The Swiss actor died at home in Zurich on Friday night, his management said.

Ganz was well-known in German-language cinema and theatre and also had roles in English-language films including The Reader and The Manchurian Candidate.

His most famous role, however, was as Adolf Hitler in Downfall. One particular scene depicting Hitler in apoplectic fury became a meme and spawned thousands of parodies online.

In this version, the subtitles are changed to make it look like he is complaining about vuvuzelas, the South African trumpets made famous in the 2010 football World Cup.

The film, called Der Untergang in German, told the story of Hitler's final days in his Berlin bunker. It grossed $92m (£71.3m) at box offices around the world when it was released.

It was named winner of the BBC Four World Cinema Award and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, but since then it has become almost as famous for a wave of internet parodies of its final scene, poking fun at numerous news events.

A New York Times reviewer called Ganz's performance "intriguing" and "creepily charismatic".

In 2005 Ganz told The Guardian newspaper that he spent four months preparing for the role, studying historical records including a secretly-recorded tape of Hitler and observing people with Parkinson's disease, which he came to believe the dictator had.

But he said: "I cannot claim to understand Hitler. Even the witnesses who had been in the bunker with him were not really able to describe the essence of the man.

"He had no pity, no compassion, no understanding of what the victims of war suffered."

Ganz, the most famous Swiss actor, had a rich and varied career. He appeared in Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979) and played an angel in Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire (1987) and its sequel Faraway, So Close! (1993).

He appeared in genres including noir - The American Friend (1977) - and science fiction - The Boys from Brazil (1978), which starred Sir Laurence Olivier. In 2008 he had a role in The Baader Meinhof Complex and his last role was in Lars von Trier's 2018 film The House that Jack Built.

At the time of his death, Ganz was the holder of the Iffland-Ring, an accolade to the German-speaking actor judged "most significant and worthy".

The ring is passed from person to person, and it is not yet clear who Ganz had intended it to transfer to on the occasion of his death.

It has been reported that Ganz had been diagnosed with colon cancer.

It was a skilled acting job...that's part of what makes the parodies so funny. Plus, it's in German so there in no need for voice over in the English-speaking internet world. Then there are the reaction shots which fit right into the fake narrative. :lol:

All you need is a clever script and some subtitles. Hard to understand why the guy didn't shave the crappy mustache. :lol:

Bruno Ganz.

R.I.P.

PS. Usually the movie titles have pretty funny translations in Finland. But to translate "Der Himmel über Berlin" to "Wings of Desire" is quite funny.
