Leslie Phillips - Leslie Phillips' Sorrow Over Peter O'toole's Death

Leslie Phillips was devastated when he heard Peter O'toole had died as he was due to visit his old friend later that day.

The British actor had scheduled a meeting to catch up with his pal after hearing of his recent ill health, but he was too late.

Phillips explains to Britain's Sunday Mirror newspaper, "He was a very private person though and we fell out of contact for a while. That happens with people in this industry. Then recently I read that he had been unwell. I made plans to go and see him, but the day I was supposed to go they told me it was too late because he had died. That came as a great shock to me."

The Lawrence Of Arabia star died on 14 December (13) at the age of 81.
