Grant Tilly

Actor Grant Tilly, who died in April 2012, displayed his gift for understated comedy in movies Middle Age Spread and Carry Me Back. But the versatile Tilly had done it all — from acclaimed theatre performances (often in Roger Hall plays) to screen roles that have taken in everything from adventure movies and landmark historical dramas (The Governor), to children's TV, sitcoms (Gliding On), and a host of voiceovers.

With his expertise, the film cannot fail.
