Loved to have linked the clip in Kes where he has a go at a school bully McDowell where he says his dad bigger than McDowells:D

A natural in Kes, as they all were.

Rest In Peace.
Saw later on the news that he said he had been a teacher before becoming an actor so when he was in Kes he just played himself.
I also note Brian Glover the sports master had also been a teacher in Barnsley where I believe the film was made.
