I find it strange that Felicity Kendal hasn't made any comment or tribute regarding the death of Richard Briers unless I have missed some of the news.
I would have thought that after partnering him in the highly successful "Good Life" she would have made a statement by now.
Any comments from anyone !!!!!!

In an interview he gave he said that they had never been close and that she had not been near him since he was ill. He said she was charming but strange.

Errol - I must have missed that. Did she speak highly of him?

AnninGlos - I would never of thought that they were not close. It just goes to show doesn't it.

Maybe Ms Kendal is a private person.

People deal with grief in different ways and she may be a very private person

if they didn´t remain close friends, which they clearly didn´t, why should she comment?. Their lives moved on.
I wouldn´t know what to say if I was expected to comment on the death of someone I worked with 30 odd years ago & hadn´t seen since .

That's my take also wisechild. They were work colleauges from over thirty years ago.
Acting best friends doesn't mean actors are friends in real life - it's just another job.
