What a shame! Too young, with a brilliant career that should have continued.
Nephew of Leslie Howard, great-nephew of Fay Compton.

I can only find information that says he died of pneumonia, but what was the 'dibilitating illness' that caused mobility problems?

This obituary says he "suffered with diabetes and eventually had one leg amputated" : http://www.theguardian.com/stage/2015/f ... lan-howard

So sorry to hear it. What a legacy he had in family and left in performance!

The scenes between Foyle and Beck in "War Games" are quite poignant. Glad that's part of his legacy, too.
Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit.

This is indeed sad news - how lucky we are that great actors live on in film and digital form.
But, what does the brain matter....compared to the heart?
