R.I.P.: Ian Richardson (1934-2007)

Ian Richardon's resume included a 15-year stint with the Royal Shakespeare Company (under Sir Peter Hall, no less), scads of high-profile performances in prestigious British TV dramas, and a co-starring role opposite Oscar-winners Halle Berry and Martin Landau in... well, B.A.P.S. All in all, a pretty damn full life, I would say. And I love what he said about his dear wife, former actress Maroussia Frank, who traveled everywhere with him: "Without Maroussia I cannot function. I don't even know which bank my account is with, the name of my accountant or how to work the Aga." (Yeah, I had to look it up, too: I think he means a stove.) He'll be missed.
