Sam Kelly obituary

15 June 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Versatile stage and screen character actor loved for his roles in popular TV comedies

Equally at home in panto and Pinter, sitcom and Shakespeare, Sam Kelly, who has died of cancer aged 70, was a quirky, instantly recognisable character actor, often playing beyond his natural age, and often peering through rimless spectacles like a mole pushing through to the surface. And once there, he quipped and cavorted with the best of them: Dave Allen, Dick Emery and Paul Merton on television, and the Two Ronnies, with whom he toured onstage to Australia, having partnered Ronnie Barker in the sitcom Porridge as the illiterate conman Bunny Warren, who couldn't decipher the words "burglar alarm" when it most mattered.

He enjoyed a long-time collaboration with the director Mike Leigh, dating from a "wiped" BBC television film, Knock for Knock, in 1976, right through to Leigh's latest, Mr Turner, starring Timothy Spall as the great painter. »
