Following the death of Alan Rickman this week, I saw that a friend of mine had watched and reviewed the film Truly Madly Deeply on Letterboxd. In their review they comment on how several of the actors involved in the film have recently passed away including Rickman, David Ryall and Christopher Rozycki
Rozycki of course played Kuba in the first 3 series of Casualty and remains a much loved figure. His character in Truly Madly Deeply was very much in the same vein as the hapless Polish immigrant he had played in the medical drama, and he also appeared in such productions as Local Hero, Sleepers, and French Cooking In Ten Minutes
However, the internet seems largely oblivious of his passing. I haven't seen it mentioned on the Holby fan site and both IMDB and Wiki suggest he is still with us.
However my friend pointed me to a forum which has Toby Hadoke claim he passed away in the autumn of last year - and a comment on a video of French Cooking claims that an accident took him away on 10th April 2015.
If it's true, and I presume it must be, this is very sad news, especially as he was very active again in the past eighteen months popping up in Stella and Downton Abbey and appearing in the film The Honourable Rebel as Alexander Korda.
A belated RIP to this wonderful actor, thanks so much for the memories.
