British actor Richard Johnson, who was a film, theatre and TV star, has died at the age of 87, from a short illness at the Royal Marsden hospital in Chelsea, his family has announced. Johnson’s career has been a long and successful one, including roles in films such as The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas in 2008 and Khartoum alongside Charlton Heston and Laurence Olivier in 1966.

 

He was a founding member of the Royal Shakespeare Company and played several lead roles such as Mark Anthony in Caesar and Romeo.

Currently studying Film Theory at the University of South Wales, I have strong aspirations of obtaining a career in entertainment journalism in the near future. I predominantly write about Film and TV, but also have interests in Radio, Sports and the ever-present Internet. Although I believe journalism is my true calling, I also wish to fit screenwriting in somewhere down my career line – I guess I just love writing in general! Once my Degree is completed, I plan on studying a Master’s in Creative Writing to extend my writing abilities and strengthen my prospects.
