The 'Not So Famous Celebrity' Death Thread :(

Recommended Posts

Irish actor Pat Laffan - best known for playing milkman Pat Mustard in Father Ted - has died at the age of 79.

Announcing the news, his agents described him as "one of the leading stage actors of his generation".

Father Ted creator Graham Linehan tweeted: "Rest in peace, Pat, a pleasure to work with you."

Throughout his career, Laffan appeared in almost 40 films and made 30 TV appearances, including in BBC's EastEnders and in RTE's The Clinic.

He was also known to Irish audiences for his portrayal of Mr Burgess in Roddy Doyle's 1993 film The Snapper.

In a statement on social media, the Lisa Richards Agency, which represented Laffan for almost 30 years, said it was with "tremendous sadness" that it announced his death.

That fucking episode, when the priests perform mass on the back of a trailer, and later on after the whiteboard montage, "that's it - that's the idea? another mass?"

just one of the most achingly funny pieces of writing I've ever choked through
