Roger Rees was an incredible actor. I first saw him in the TV production of Nicholas Nickelby. For which he won an Emmy. He won a Tony for it also.
His performance inspired one of my best poems. Which I lost some years ago. But I remember one stanza, the last one.
I love him in a passion
A flush of blood in cheek
A scream, A rage, A kiss
Goodbye Roger, not many people’s performances are brilliant enough to turn into a MUSE.
