Pete Postlethwaite

He died over a week ago now but it's never too late to think about somebody awesome.

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.
