RIP Peter Falk

Peter Falk has died aged 83. :(

I was never a fan of Columbo but he was a great actor and I fondly remember him as the grandfather in The Princess Bride.

A blessed release, as I understand it.

He was struck down by Alzheimer's and in the last few years had no knowledge of family, friends, or even that he had starred in one of the most famous shows worldwide.

:cry:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
