I remember how amazing he was in In The Name of The Father when we watched it in Law class at college.
I remember when I saw Romeo & Juliet 3 times at the cinema...and all the times I've watched it with my classes since.
I remember how lucky I felt to see him play Prospero in The Tempest at the Royal Exchange in Manchester a few years ago.
This is how I think I'll always remember him though. If you've never seen Brassed Off it's worth a look. It's very British - think of The Full Monty with brass bands - but how can you resist a performance like this...
He'll be missed.
