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.

Jeremy Kemp also appeared in an episode of Star Trek Deep Space Nine as the brother of Captain Jean-Luc Picard in an episode, possibly double episode, set at Jean-Luc's family home in France. I do not recall the year, but his character was very antagonistic to Picard. I also remember him well in Z Cars and Colditz. An excellent actor. Should have had a 'gong'.
