The News (New Glasgow) - - LIFESTYLES -

LONDON — Bri­tish ac­tor Hugh Bon­neville has joined hun­dreds of mourn­ers at a me­mo­rial ser­vice for the cre­ator of the mar­malade­lov­ing bear Padding­ton. Bon­neville, who played adop­tive fa­ther Mr. Brown in the “Padding­ton” films, told mourn­ers at London’s St. Paul’s Cathe­dral that Michael Bond “was as kindly, dig­ni­fied, charm­ing and lov­able as the im­mor­tal Padding­ton Bear he gave us.” Bond died in June at age 91.

Bon­neville read trib­utes from fans along­side young ac­tors Madeleine Har­ris and Sa­muel Joslin, who play his chil­dren in the “Padding­ton” movies. —
