DEATH OF BILL FLYNN (article first published : 2007-07-11)

One of South Africa’s finest actors - Bill Flynn, probably best known by Durban audiences for his comedy work in the plays of Paul Slabolepszy such as Heel Against The Head and Running Riot – died earlier today. Born on December 13, 1948, he was 58 years old. It appears that the cause of death was a heart attack and he went peacefully in his sleep.

Bill Flynn was a great all-rounder, hilarious in comedy characters while presenting an impressive dramatic quality in more serious roles.

Running Riot is really the Bill Flynn show - and that is all the reason anyone needs to see it,” said Margaret von Klemperer in her review of the show for The Witness (carried on artSMart in June, 2001).

The South African theatre, film and television industry is the poorer for his passing.
