What happened to this wonderful actor? Was he ill when he retired from the profession? He seemed an underused, undervalued UK artist. His performance in The Games (1970) was a monument to the craft. They've knighted many a lesser actor.

Still alive? Only the "girls", viz. Vanessa & Judi. from his class at Central seem to be still around. Just seen him again in repeat of Winds of War (tx in South Africa) Are the royalties still coming?

My mother, Helena, looked after Jeremy and his two sisters during the war and my parents kept in touch with his until their deaths. Subsequently I kept in touch with Jeremy's younger sister for about 15 years, but for the last couple of years I have heard nothing from her. I would dearly love to keep in touch with the family, maybe via Jeremy and to know what has happened to his sister. I have what I assume is an old address for Jeremy in London SW6. Can anyone put me in touch with him?
