Roger Lloyd-Pack died at home on 15 January 2014 from pancreatic cancer.
To international audiences his greatest fame was as Barty Crouch, Sr. in the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. In 2006 he played John Lumic and provided the voice of the Cyber-Controller in two episodes of Doctor Who, “Rise of the Cybermen” and “The Age of Steel”, opposite David Tennant, who had played his son in the same Harry Potter film.
“Oh Owen, you wouldn’t give me a hand with the shopping, would you?” “Mhhh, what’s in it for me?” “Erm… eternal salvation?!” “Anything more, you know, unnebulous?” “Chocolate HobNob??” “LET’S DO IT!!!”
Barty Crouch Senior (HP Goblet of Fire), John Lumic (Doctor Who, Rise of the Cybermen, Age of Steel), The Ghost of Christmas Future (Nan’s Christmas Carol, The Catherine Tate Show Christmas Special 2009)
Thank you for entertaining people all over the world. You’ll be greatly missed.
Why do I have a facebook? WHY? It somehow always ends up being a mood ruiner.
Dear John Lumic,
I know you know how to remove all emotions for your Cybermen and such but would it be possible for you to just remove jealously from me? It really wrecks havoc on my mental stability and life. If you could, that would be really cool. I’m all down for a jealousy inhibitor.
