The pair starred in the BBC comedy drama Monarch of the Glen.
Lord Fellowes told ITV News:
Richard Briers was a great artist and a great friend.
Only a few can manage this particular double act, and I feel I am extremely privileged to have known and worked with him.
He was a marvellous chap and I loved him.
