  • • Timothy Sydney Robert Hardy, actor, born 29 October 1925; died 3 August 2017
  • They paid tribute to an actor whose theatre, film and television career spanned 70 years.
  • His early career as a leading light at both Stratford-upon-Avon and the Old Vic, though, suggested he might follow his great friend Richard Burton to even greater glory.
  • He played Churchill in French, in Paris, in a play called Celui Qui A Dit Non (1999).
  • His Siegfried in All Creatures Great and Small one of my favourite tv depictions ever.
  • Robert Hardy's Siegfried Farnon held the perfect balance between being an astute business partner, strict boss and guiding fatherly figure.
  • Godspeed heavenwards and on to New Horizons dear Robert Hardy.
  • I remember watching All Creatures Great and Small as a kid; sad news about Robert Hardy.
  • Having got that off my chest he was a truly wonderful actor and will be remembered for many great performances, Harry Potter a mere footnote to his career.

  • His Siegfried in All Creatures Great and Small one of my favourite tv depictions ever.
  • I'm Dutch and know him only from the All Creatures Great and Small series which I watched in the 1980s when I was a kid.
  • So sad to say goodbye to yet another fine actor that seemed to have been around forever.
  • So glad you didn't describe him as 'best known for Harry Potter' as many did.
  • To my amazement, in this production the actor kept my attention and interest through every line.
