Stars Pay Tribute To Sir John Mortimer

Film stars ALAN RICKMAN, JEREMY IRONS and EMILIA FOX came together in London to pay tribute to the late SIR JOHN MORTIMER on Tuesday (17Nov09).
The trio were among hundreds of mourners, including actors, politicians and members of British royalty, who gathered at Southwark Cathedral for the beloved author's memorial service.
Mortimer's actress daughter Emily, who lives in New York, was forced to miss the ceremony - because she is heavily pregnant with her second child.
Lord Kinnock, one of Mortimer's closest friends, paid tribute to his pal, describing him as an "illuminating" star.
He told the assembled crowd, "He illuminated our lives, he lit up our times. Rejoice in him and be thankful."
Mortimer died in January (09) following a long illness.
