Robert Hardy Dead at 91

One of the finest actors I have seen as well as an educated raconteur and world's foremost expert on the British longbow. A lion of the stage and screen, perhaps best known in this country as Siegfried Farnon.

His Winston Churchill, in several iterations, was extraordinary, and his range was broad.

I suspect those of us with grandchildren, or children of the right age, will remember him for his recurring role as the Minister of Magic in several of the Harry Potter Movies.

May his soul rest in heaven.
