    Default Actor Milo O'Shea has died aged 86

    Actor Milo O'Shea has died aged 86:

    Acting legend Milo O'Shea has died - RT Ten

    Seen him in so many things over the years but I especially liked his performance in the 1967 version of Ulysses. Jospeh Strick's film has lots of faults in it (as anyone would have trying to film Ulysses!) But I thought the Molly Bloom soliloquy was filmed particular well. When my mother went to see it in the '60's, she said that the women had to sit on one side of the cinema, and the men had to sit on the other. Anyone know if that's true?

    He also famously, if inadvertently, gave Duran Duran their band name with arguably his most renowned role in Barbarella.

    I remember him best as the friar in Zefirellli's Romeo and Juliet.
    He really knew how to work those eyebrows.

    Saw him and the also recently deceased David Kelly in "The Sunshine Boys" about 15 years ago in The Gate.

    Great to see such stage presence close up.

    May they both RIP.

    You didn't have to travel that far. This was the rule in at least one small cinema in County Cavan in the 1940's, enforced by a priest standing inside the door.

    No I don't have link, just an anecdote told to me by an elderly man.
