What a shame. Ian Holm has died.
I knew him best from Terry Gilliam’s films Brazil and Time Bandits, but he was one of those guys who popped up in everything.
Actually, the first time I heard of him was when he played Frodo in the BBC radio dramatisation of Lord of the Rings from 1978. I remember thinking what a coincidence it was that he went on to play Bilbo, Frodo’s uncle, in the films.
88 is no age for a hobbit.
