Mike Reid Dies Of Heart Attack

Mon Jul 30, 2007 5:20 am

Just heard about this, very saddening to hear. He was one of my favourite actors/presenters.

Former EastEnders actor Mike Reid has died at the age of 67 after suffering a suspected heart attack, his agent said.
The actor, who played Frank Butcher in the BBC soap, was living in Spain at the time of his death.

Mr Reid started his career as a stand-up comedian before working as a stunt driver. He went on to work in TV shows including Doctor Who and Minder.
