Obit here: Glynn Edwards obituary
Also in Dixon of Dock Green, Z Cars, The Saint, The Avengers, Steptoe and Son, Public Eye, Bless This House, Crown Court, The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, The Professionals and obviously in Minder too.
A fine and popular actor.
Another part of my childhood/adolescence/adulthood gone forever.
Yeah, RIP a bit of my childhood too.
Arthur's tab still hasn't been paid
Re watched Get Carter last week, possibly the best gangster crim up north film ever.
I've lost count of the number of times I've watched Get Carter.
Apart from it being a brilliant film (sorry, "fillum") it reminds me of bits of Newcastle that were still there when I was at Uni 35-odd years ago. Sadly virtually all gone now
I remember the first time I saw that, must have been in the 80s, the beach at the end with the sea dumping cable thing was at Blackhall. I remember going to that beach as a kid in the 60s, my aunt and uncle lived there. Brings back memories of the north. Great film.
I see he was in David Sullivans soft porn film Playbirds.
The good stuff far outweigh the bad. Seemed a likable sort.
ps Married to Yootha Joyce Didn't know that!

87, I'd have guessed he was older, closer Cole's age. RIP.
R.I.P. Minder has always been a favourite of mine.
He was in Zulu too.
Awww sorry to hear
Started out with Joan Littlewood's Theatre Workshop. Here he is in 1960, from a live recording of 'Fings Ain't Wot They Used T'Be', singing the title number with Yootha Joyce Miriam Karlin.

(As a child I used to sing along to Max Bygraves' cleaned up hit parade version of this. These are Lionel Bart's original unbroadcastable lyrics).
Glynn in 'Fings' standing next to Eileen Kennally. On the right, between James Booth and Edward Caddick, a ridiculously young looking Brian Murphy.
