        Every character he played, even if they only appeared on screen for a short time, was memorable.

        Mark of a good actor. RIP.

    He also played...

    ...the vigilante in 'Highlander', with the muscle car. One of those 'faces' you suddenly remember all over the place.

    I also read elsewhere that he shared a flat with many actors during their post-student days.

    Very sad.

    Fist full of travellers cheques

    It has been mentioned, but I'll always remember him as the unhinged cafe owner in this Comic Strip classic.

    Keep calm, Marie.

    That's an awfully big bus. There could be six people in there.

    Jesus! If they only buy coffee, it'll be enough to pay the ground rent.

    Condolences.

      Cafe owner:      Two steaks coming right up.

      Miguel:              Wait. Make that four.

      Carlos:              Each.

      Miguel:              Six.

      Carlos:              Eight.

      Miguel:              Ten!

      Cafe owner:      Aw c'mon guys, ten steaks each? Are you joking?

      Miguel:              Do we look like comedians?

      Classic...

    Rocky Horror Picture show?!?!?!?

    I thought Barry Bostwick played Brad Majors in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".

      Yes. Barry played Brad in the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

      However Christopher played Brad in the Rocky Horror Show. I.e. the original stage production, not the film.
