That's a real shock. Neutral

I liked him in White Mischief.

I don't think I ever saw him in a bad role.
He was one of those actors who if you saw his name in the cast list it would almost certainly guarantee a good film.

Was he Dr Steven Ward in the Profumo/Keeler fiasco ?

Yes he was. I always thought people were a bit hard on Steven Ward.

Remember his portrayals of Quentin Crisp and John Merrick? and his most gruesome role...when the alien burst out of his stomach in the film Alien?? Shocked
