Grange Hill's 'Mr Bronson' Has Died.

Thu Sep 01, 2005 4:16 am

Michael Sheard, the actor who played Mr Bronson, the most feared teacher ever on British television, has sadly passed away today.

No one who grew up in Britain in the 1980's will ever forget those two chilling words "YOU, BOY!"

Bit of a coincidence that he was only mentioned in the Self-Pic's thread a few days ago.
