Roger Lloyd-Pack, the British actor best known for his role in classic sitcom Only Fools And Horses, has died. He passed away at home on Wednesday night, suffering from pancreatic cancer, his agent told the UK press. He was 69. Lloyd-Pack played the slow-witted road sweeper Colin “Trigger” Ball on long-running BBC One sitcom Only Fools And Horses. He also played farmer Owen Newitt in the Richard Curtis-created BBC series The Vicar Of Dibley. The actor’s feature career included turns in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire, in which he took on the part of Bartemius “Barty” Crouch, Sr, the head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.
Sad news. Even though the roles of Ludo Bagman and Barty Crouch were sort of combined into one role for the film version of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Lloyd-Pack was more or less what I would have expected Barty Crouch to be like.
