TV's Mr Bronson actor Sheard dies

Michael Sheard became a cult hero for playing Mr Bronson

Actor Michael Sheard, best known for playing teacher Mr Bronson in BBC One's long-running children's drama Grange Hill in the 1980s, has died aged 65.

His agent said he had been suffering from cancer and died at home on the Isle of Wight.

Sheard also had many movie roles, including the part of Admiral Ozzel in Star Wars film The Empire Strikes Back.

He also played Adolf Hitler five times, most famously in Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.

In Grange Hill, his stern manner and cries of "You, boy" as deputy head and French teacher Maurice Bronson made him one of TV's most memorable figures.

Michael Sheard played Adolf Hitler five times

Born in Aberdeen, he studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (Rada) in London before taking small parts in TV shows such as Dixon of Dock Green, Crossroads and Doctor Who.

Other film appearances included Raiders of the Lost Ark, All Quiet On The Western Front and The Dirty Dozen - Second Assignment.

He regularly appeared at Star Wars, cult TV and 1980s-themed conventions and nightclubs. The first of three autobiographies, Yes, Mr Bronson: Memoirs of a Bum Actor, was published in 1997.
