This is too important (and sad) not to use as an update.
Veteran actor Edward Woodward has died aged 79, his agent has confirmed.
Woodward is best known for his roles in The Equalizer and The Wicker Man.
Robin Hardy, who directed The Wicker Man, said of Woodward: “He was one of the greatest actors of his generation, without any question, with a broad career on American television as well as British film.
“He was the absolute star of The Wicker Man. He was an extremely nice human being.”
