Actor Richard E Grant has tweeted that he is "raising a figurative glass" to Richard Griffiths, with whom he starred in the 1987 film Withnail and I.
Here's the plan. Going to fire up a Camberwell firm young carrot in memory of my 'Uncle Monty' and raise a figurative glass of sherry to him
He also commiserated with Daniel Radcliffe that both actors had "lost an uncle," since Griffiths played 'Uncle Vernon' opposite Radcliffe as well as 'Uncle Monty' opposite Grant.
@danieiradciiffe Am so so sad that we have both lost an 'Uncle' with the death of Richard Griffiths. He was my 'Uncle Monty' in my 1st film
