Veteran actor Edward Woodward has died aged 79, his agent has confirmed.

The Croydon-born star had been suffering from various illnesses, including pneumonia, and died in hospital, said Janet Glass.

Woodward is most famous for his roles in the cult 1973 horror film The Wicker Man, alongside Sir Christopher Lee, and TV series The Equalizer and Callan.

Sir Christopher described Woodward as "a very good friend and a splendid actor".

Ms Glass said he had been ill for several months and passed away surrounded by members of his family.


Was anyone else here a fan of The Equalizer ?

That's sad. I'm more familiar with his son's work than his.

Ah, that's too bad. I was a fan of all those 80s police/PI dramas- the Equalizer was one of them.
