John Shrapnel has died. I worked with him when I was at the National with Larry Olivier. John was one of the nicest men I have ever met. He was also an exceptionally fine actor. I hadn’t seen him in a long time but I loved him and carried his goodness in my heart. RIP

Very sad to learn of the passing of John Shrapnel (1942-2020), a magisterial performer of patrician features and elegant voice. On stage, film, and television, his natural authority was frequently called upon by memorable productions set in the ancient world. A great loss. Vale! pic.twitter.com/A9qtbrSEVy
