Malcolm Terrey is dead



Malcolm Terrey has been pronounced dead yesterday.

This 2020 has been a very rough year for so many people and in the process, some lost their loved ones.

However, the news about Malcolm’s death has brought deep unhappiness to the hearts of Malcolm‘s friends, family and every concerned persons, and words cannot express how devastated they are at this difficult time of mourning their beloved one.

“Malcolm is not with us physically but will always exist in our hearts, minds and memories,” a message shared across social media timeline reads.

According to report: “He has written sketches, performed in comedy, played the Dame in a hundred pantomimes and had his audiences rollicking and coming back for more. Take Joburg Follies, devised by Kevin Feather, written and performed by Malcolm, ran for years. Who remembers his take on the Royal Family — him playing each member on the balcony, simply by changing wigs and hats? 

“His acting school began ‘on stage’. As a boy growing up in Bournemouth, England, he joined every amdram group there was. For pantomimes, he took his mother’s Singer sewing machine and made his own Dame costumes and wowed his audiences night after night,” Theatre Lives wrote.

“From the vast range of entertainment that is performed on the stage, Malcolm Terrey has commanded a niche all his own; fun, farce and feathers … and an excellent actor between each of these.”  

According to Collett Dawson, a publicist who worked with him, Terrey was a loving and caring man.

“He was such a lovely old-school professional actor; so dedicated and ever so prepared. Always kind, helpful to his colleagues.

“Just a lovely giving and generous man with his knowledge and his theatre expertise. He had crazy British and very intelligent wits that just made everyone laugh. His nickname was ‘mother’, which makes you realise his role. He looked after everyone; he will be hugely missed,” Dawson said.

May his soul rest in perfect peace.
