Andrew Hall passes away, age 65

Sad news in today is that actor Andrew Hall has died, age 65. 

He was the actor who played Audrey's fella Marc Selby, the cross-dresser who was also known as Marcia in Coronation Street in 2011.

A statement on Twitter from his management group InterTalent Rights said: "It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our client and friend Andrew Hall."

Andrew was perhaps best known for his role as Russell Parkinson in Butterflies between 1978 and 1983. On the show, he played the son of Wendy Craig and Geoffrey Palmer and the brother of Only Fools and Horses actor Nicholas Lyndhurst.

His son Josh Hall said: "Andrew began his acting career playing the character of Russell in the BBC series Butterflies. He then worked extensively as an actor on both stage and screen including a period at the RSC and a run as Bill in the West End production of Mamma Mia! Later, he worked as a director and producer, enjoying successes with productions including Edward Albee's Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? at the Trafalgar, and Kindertransport, which toured the UK. Most recently he appeared as The Gentleman in the SyFy series Blood Drive. He is survived by his wife Abigail, his mother Mabel, his children Kate and Josh, and his grandchildren Jasper and Maggie."
