Virginia McKenna OBE writes: "There will be countless people mourning the untimely death of Roger Rees. I am one of them. A brilliant, versatile actor and a loyal and dear friend.

We first met at Stratford in 1984 - he was playing Hamlet and I his mother, Gertrude. We loved working together and subsequently performed a programme many times called "Sons and Mothers", devised for us by Anne Harvey. When I saw him a while ago I suggested we should update it and do one called "Grandmothers and Grandsons". This now can never be.

My son Will and I send our love and deepest sympathy to Rick Elice, his devoted and loving husband. Roger has left an unfillable void."
