Subject: Still Game actor Jake D'Arcy dies

Written By: Philip Eno on 05/30/15 at 9:38 am

The cast of Still Game has led tributes to actor Jake D'Arcy, who has died.

The Scot was best known for his role as Pete the Jakey in the BBC Scotland sitcom, and for playing the awkward PE teacher in the film Gregory's Girl.

He also starred in a string of Scottish productions including Rac C Nesbitt, Tutti Frutti and Taggart.

Still Game actor and writer Greg Hempill said Mr D'Arcy would be "hugely missed".

Scots celebrities took to Twitter to pay tribute to the actor, whose career stretched back to the early 1970s.

Mr Hemphill, who co-writes Still Game with Ford Kiernan and plays Victor in the show, said: "Jake will be hugely missed. Laughs came so easily for him. We were lucky to have him in our show.

"The Craiglang streets won't be the same."
