David Jason: Lloyd Pack was 'a pleasure to work with'

David Jason has paid tribute to his Only Fools and Horses co-star Roger Lloyd Pack:

I was very saddened to hear of Roger’s passing.

He was a very quiet, kind and unassuming actor who was a pleasure to work with.

Although he played the simple soul of Trigger in Only Fools and Horses, he was a very intelligent man and a very fine actor capable of many roles.

I shall remember him with fondness and for all the good times we had together.

– DAVID JASON
