Exceptional actor. Massive loss to the industry. Thoughts and payers are with Paul’s family at this difficult time. Thanks for all the laughs in FND.

Stephanie Brookes
So sad, but have you noticed that his left eye is slightly closed with a soft droop. I remember years ago a doctor diagnosing a random boy from a photograph /tv that had the a similar look ; and after he alerted his family it turned out to be an operable brain tumour, so basically the diagnosis saved his life.
I am always concerned when I see Romesh Ranganation too. Does anyone share my concerns?.
