According to the BBC, Sir John Mills has died aged 93.
I saw him in a restaurant a couple of years ago. He smiled and nodded to everyone as he moved through the place (very slowly) — because people didn’t turn and stare at John Mills, they turned and smiled — his hair a long white mane, and sat down with Liza Minelli and David Gest, who proceeded to chainsmoke all over the guy for the next hour.
The person I was with is quite well known in British TV. And he did a complete fanboy. Because, you know, that was John Mills.
And John Mills was brilliant.
