Paul Ritter, 'James Bond' and 'Harry Potter' Actor, Dies at 54

Living overseas, I sometimes miss news from the UK, one such example being the passing of British actor Paul Ritter back in April of 2021.

People in the UK will know him from the sitcom ‘Friday Night Dinner’ which ran for six series starting in 2011.

International viewers may recognise him from the HBO miniseries ‘Chernobyl’ from 2019.

Mr Ritter also appeared in the 2008 Bond film ‘Quantum of Solace’ and a film in the Harry Potter franchise, ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ from 2009.

Paul also performed in Shakespeare demonstrating his versatility, from comedy to drama, excelling in both.

I was very sad to hear of his death, and I’m not alone. Apparently some fans posted how they were in tears watching the sitcom after he died.

Tasmin Greig, his co-star in ‘Friday Night Dinner’, wrote “We all miss him terribly, an incredible actor, a true friend and a lovely human being.”
