    Oh man. I liked this guy virtually every time I saw him guest starring in something. [LINK]

    Roy Dotrice, best known for playing Leopold Mozart in the Oscar-winning film Amadeus, has died aged 94.

    Dotrice was an award-winning actor, taking home the Tony award for best actor in 2000 for his performance in the A Moon for the Misbegotten revival.

    The actor first came to the public’s attention playing a leading character in the BBC’s 1971 adaptation of A.P. Herbert’s Misleading Cases. A few years later, Dotrice played Charles Dickens in the miniseries Dickens of London.

    Dotrice also played various sci-fi roles, appearing in Space: 1999 and the Buffy the Vampire spin-off Angel.

    Game of Thrones fans will also recognise Dotrice’s voice, the actor having recorded audiobooks for each of George R. R. Martin A Song of Ice and Fire novels.

    He should’ve been in Doctor Who, except that I suppose he moved to the States for steadier work at some point between Space: 1999 and Magnum. Just a fantastic voice. The B5 episode he was in, he deserves some praise for that – all kind and grandfatherly until he reveals that he’s an outright bastard working for the “new regime” that has come into power on Earth.
