Charmed life of a charm­ing ac­tor

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The great David Kelly, who died ear­lier in the week at the age of 82, ad­mit­ted that, in com­par­i­son to many ac­tors, he en­joyed some­thing of a charmed life. Re­call­ing his days work­ing along­side the likes of Milo O’shea, he told Reel News: “You didn’t live the life of Ri­ley, but you never stopped work­ing. There weren’t very many of us, be­cause only an idiot would do it. This is long be­fore it seemed pos­si­ble to


be rich and fa­mous. The idea that any of us would be rich and fa­mous was ridicu­lous.”

Kelly may not have been rich, but tributes from the likes of Johnny Depp con­firmed that he gained a pretty re­spectable (and de­served) de­gree of fame.
