He has passed away, peacefully and at home according to his representative, the British interpreter Geoffrey Palmer. He was 93 years old and the last role we had seen him play for the cinema was a little character in Paddington. However, it was the small screen where this actor achieved the greatest successes of him, with a prolific and versatile career dating back to the late 1950s.
Palmer, born in London, soon became a regular face of British television, intervening in series such as Doctor Who (reappearing in the 2007 special The Voyage of the Damned), Butterflies or As Time Goes By. In this latest sitcom Palmer teamed up with Judi Dench, showing so much chemistry that both actors reappeared together in two films: the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies and the historical drama Her Majesty Mrs. Brown, both from 1997.
Within the cinema, Palmer also appeared in films such as A fish named Wanda (1988), The madness of King George (1994) or The Pink Panther 2 (2009), also forming part of the prestigious British series The Empty Crown in 2012.
