Throughout his four-decade career, the British actor had enjoyed countless big (and small) screen successes including his breakthrough role in 1980’s ‘The Long Good Friday’.

He also starred in big screen favourites such as ‘Mermaids’ (co-starring Cher), ‘Mona Lisa’, which he won a Golden Globe for Best Actor (and an Oscar nod) and ‘Mrs Henderson Presents’, which saw him baring all in front of none other than Dame Judi Dench.

But he is perhaps most fondly remembered for his starring role opposite a curvy cartoon sex symbol in the shape of Jessica Rabbit in the part-animated 1988 smash ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’.
