As an American, I very much enjoyed his role as Hector MacDonald in Monarch of the Glen. He made the show.
Hector MacDonald... great actor, fine man... Loved his work.
Always adored his appearance in any film and/or television show. Recently rewatched all of my New Tricks episodes and cheerfully there he appeared.
May your family find peace and comfort during this time of loss.
I also loved the show Monarch of the Glen. My condolences to the family. Prayers are with you and comfort from God's word. Jer. 29:11, 12
