Nicol Williamson - Actor Nicol Williamson Dies

Scottish actor Nicol Williamson has died at the age of 73.
He passed away after losing his two-year battle with oesophageal cancer just before Christmas (11), his son Luke tells Britain's Daily Telegraph.
Williamson made his name in the John Osborne play Inadmissible Evidence, for which he won a Tony award in 1965, and was later described by the playwright as "the greatest actor since Marlon Brando".
He went on to star in TV shows and movies throughout the 1960s and into the 1980s, including fantasy film Excalibur, which he appeared in opposite former lover Dame Helen Mirren.
Williamson's last big screen appearance was in 1997's superhero picture Spawn, and in recent years he had been concentrating on music.
