TRIBUTE TO FRANTZ DOBROWSKY (article first published : 2006-01-28)

Stephen Kay pays tribute to the late actor Frantz Dobrowsky.

I hadnít been in contact for about a year (with Frantz) as I had been engrossed in a new job in a new country. I had no idea what his latest developments were.

What a truly amazing man. The loss has hit me today. My first memory of him was when I was a toddler and he and Janice did children's shows on a brand new SABC TV. I followed his work and had the privilege to meet and become a firm friend, neighbour and tenant. He was a born actor and lived as he died - very dramatically.

A true son of the arts and a true friend of mine, I will miss him very much. On many occasion I arrived at a theatre with friends in tow and picked my tickets to his latest show. I am not in the arts and would have been a complete heathen had it not been for his eagerness to share his remarkable talent. I was in a unique position to observe this man on and off the stage. I was lucky.

Goodbye my friend and thank for allowing me in. I will miss you terribly. Stephen Kay (e-mail:stephen.kay@uk.ibm.com)
