I will never forget Julian and the impression he made upon me both as a good friend and a wonderful actor. We first met when we were engaged to play for a year in a season of plays at The Byre Theatre, St. Andrews, Scotland in 1961. Initially the Company comprised a nucleus of four actors: Julian, his wife Patricia Mountain and my wife to be Edwina Day, and myself.
In such a small theatre holding only 74 seats the plays we performed were ambitious including Bernard Shaw's 'The Devil's Disciple' and Christopher Fry's 'The Lady's Not For Burning'. In both these plays and others we performed during that year Julian was the epitome of what a leading actor should be: tall, with rugged good looks, and a marvellous speaking voice, and a maturity beyond his years. Julian never acted off stage he kept his special talent for a paying audience, he was a true professional.
Julian had a great sense of humour which I appreciated. We were both mimics. At the end of a run of one play we were expected to help with the building of the set for the next. Neither of us was all that practical and sometimes we worked well into the night. To aid the monotony we would pretend to be two builders' labourers to the amusement of the rest of our cast. Did I say Julian didn't act off stage? Well you have to give thespians some licence don't you? At all events my time with Julian was filled with laughter.
Julian was a very private man, he didn't seek the limelight enjoying to the full Nature itself, and cats in particular. He had a very special rapport with them to the extent that he painted accurate portraits of people's cats. What a very talented gentleman.
In later life Julian received comfort and happiness by visiting The Woodlands Nook Cattery & Rehoming Centre in Derby. The Centre is run by Jane Lynegar whom I had the greatest pleasure of meeting on the sad day we and all friends said a final farewell to Julian.
At the time of Julian's passing it was discovered that his beloved cat Snowy was still inside the house. Snowy at present is being cared for by Jane, this very kind and gentle lady, in her Rehoming Centre until such time he is found the right home. What cat could ask for more?
Thank you for being my friend Julian, and it was my privilege and my pleasure to work with you.
God bless you.

To a special friend and lovely man, Julian you will be missed terribly. We attend your funeral on Monday and I am looking forward to meeting James Taylor, a mutual friend of yours and fellow thespian! We had a lovely hour and a half on the phone yesterday sharing our own personal memories of a wonderful person.

I promise to find Snowy,your beloved companion, the best home I can!

With love,
Jane xxxx
