Nicol Williamson - the greatest Merlin in film history - has passed away

"There are other worlds. This one is done with me."

The sad word came yesterday that Nicol Williamson, the legendary British actor who will forever be best remembered as giving us the finest portrayal of Merlin EVER, in the 1981 film Excalibur, passed away last month at the age of 75.

Williamson brought his considerable talent to bear whether he was on screen or the stage. At one point he was considered the finest living actor in the world. In addition to Merlin, Williamson will also be noted for his performance as Sherlock Holmes on drugs in The Seven Percent Solution.

Thoughts and prayers going out to his family. Think I'll pop in a DVD of Excalibur this afternoon in his memory.

Couldn't have used a more perfect quote Chris. Bravo.
