Avengers actor Gareth Hunt dies

Actor Gareth Hunt, star of The New Avengers, has died of pancreatic cancer aged 65, his agent has announced. Hunt played the role of Mike Gambit in the TV series, alongside Joanna Lumley’s Purdey and Patrick McNee as John Steed. Lumley paid tribute to her ‘dear friend’ who she said was ‘loved by everyone who knew him’.

We also particularly enjoyed him from his ‘Illuminated suit’ in the PSB video ‘It Couldn’t Happen Here’ and maybe he would state now: ‘…its only a laugh…no harm done…’!

R.I.P Mr. Gareth Hunt, thanks for all!
