Daniel O'Herlihy

I was sad to hear of the death of that fine actor Dan O’Herlihy. In a long career he was active in Theatre, Television and Films, achieving an Oscar nomination for best actor in the 1952, losing out to Marlon Brando. My own favourite was his performance in Halloween 3: season of the witches although he might be better known for his performances in Robocop.
