Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear this! I knew Roger and liked him very much. I first saw him on stage in 1978, in a musical version of A Comedy of Errors presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company, also starring Judi Dench. Some years later he moved to New York, where I got to know him and work with him. Lovely man -- great actor.
