Ward Of Court

ward everardTHE TUDORS - Season 3wardkinggeorge

The death has been announced of the great actor Simon Ward. He had roles in Judge Hon Deed, The Tudors, and various films, plays and TV series – he played a Judge, a Bishop, a King – but for me he will always be “Young Winston”, in which he portrayed the early years of the British Politician. This man, born in Beckenham, the son of a car salesman was magnificent in his depiction of the man born in Blenheim Palace, the son of British nobility.


I couldn’t find any good Ward quotes – but here’s a Winston one…

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

RIP Simon – you gave a lot of pleasure throughout your acting career
