Death of David Collings

So very sorry to say that David Collings who played Legolas in the BBC Radio Adaptation died suddenly yesterday morning aged 79 years.

I was mesmerised by his beautiful, distinctive voice at first hearing and as ell as regularly relistening to the recordings I have enjoyed hearing it in many other radio roles and on television (Silver in Sapphire and Steel), and film (39 steps, song of summer).

In other times I would have said I was devastated but in the midst of current events and with a recent sudden personal bereavement, that is too strong but I do feel it as a grief and a loss. Tolkien has been so much a part of my life and David Collings was a key figure in drawing me in to Middle Earth that along with Bernard Cribbins.

May his shade take the straight road. Namarië.
“But Finrod walks with Finarfin his father beneath the trees in Eldamar.”
