Delightfully menacing as Ming in 1980’s Flash Gordon and nearly destroyed the earth, played chess with Death, began to make things right, did an exorcism, saw the future, was in the greatest story ever told (not Flash Gordon), tried to kill Bond, and brought weight and substance to many of the roles he played.

I hadn’t realised Jose Maria Galante had recently died too, also this awful coronavirus:-

Spain’s deputy prime minister, Pablo Iglesias, tweeted: “Covid-19 has taken Chato Galante, freedom fighter, political prisoner during the dictatorship, campaigner for universal justice and against torturers – one of Brecht’s indispensables. My heart is broken. So long, comrade.”
