Alexandra Roach - Stars Pay Tribute To Victor Spinetti

Actress Alexandra Roach and comedian Rob Brydon are among the stars who have paid tribute to veteran Welsh actor Victor Spinetti following his death on Tuesday morning (19Jun12).
The star lost his battle with prostate cancer at the age of 82, and fellow Welshman Brydon has offered up his condolences.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "So sad Victor Spinetti has died. The funniest story teller I've ever met and a lovely warm man. Proud to have been his friend."
The Iron Lady star Roach revealed a personal connection to Spinetti in her tribute, adding, "Sad news that Welsh actor Victor Spinetti has passed away. Memories of him reciting me poetry and by chance he was my Nan's first boyfriend!"
British actor Michael Ball declares, "My lovely friend Victor Spinetti has passed on, One of the kindest, funniest, most generous people in this business."
