Charles knew Sher well because for many years he was part of the Royal Shakespeare Company, whose theater the Prince directs. “I admired him very much because he did his craft perfectly and played every role with passion,” said the prince. “I feel very blessed to have known him, but we have all lost a brilliant size of theater.”
Charles wishes the Royal Shakespeare Company and Shers husband and director Greg Doran all the best. “You will feel the greatest sorrow at the death of a great man and an irreplaceable talent.”
Sher played important roles in the theater company such as Macbeth and King Lear. The British actor has also appeared in dozens of major films including Shakespeare in Love, Mrs Brown and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
