Tributes paid to Boys from the Blackstuff actor Michael Angelis

Tributes paid to Boys from the Blackstuff actor Michael Angelis

Writer Jack Thorne among those to pay their respects to Angelis, who has died aged 76

Tributes have been paid after the death of Michael Angelis, an actor who will be remembered as the morose rabbit-obsessed Lucien from The Liver Birds, the desperate Chrissie in Boys from the Blackstuff, and the narrator of Thomas the Tank Engine.

Angelis died suddenly while at home with his wife on Saturday, his agent said. He was 76.
