Edward Woodward R.I.P...
Edward Woodward died today, the 16th of November. He was 79 years old. I can probably say without any hesitation that Edward was one of the best actors from the UK ever. Ever. He was one of those that could naturally, and there was never any doubt that he acted. He WAS that character.
For many, and for me, he's immortalized in The Wicker Man. One of the best movies ever made, and with a stunning performance by him as the innocent, and somewhat naive, police officer coming to Summerisle to investigate the disappearance of a little girl. A character Nicolas Cage ripped apart in his turkey-performance in the remake.
Rest in peace, man.
