Actor Ronald Magill (Emmerdale's Amos Brearly), dies age 87.

After doing some poking around on the website, I discovered that actor Ronald Magill, who played Amos Brearly on "Emmerdale Farm" from the first episode in 1972 - 1995 died yesterday, September 6th, 2007, at the age of 87. The article on his death can be found here, and I've copied and pasted the text of it behind the LJ-cut for anyone of interest.

RIP, Ronald, Amos.

Keith Richardson, Executive Producer on Emmerdale, said: “Everyone at Emmerdale is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Ronald Magill. His endearing performances secured Amos Brearly a place as one of the best loved characters in Emmerdale’s history.”

Ronald Magill made his debut appearance as Amos Brearley in Emmerdale Farm when the first episode transmitted on 16th October 1972.
