Written By: Philip Eno on 06/06/15 at 2:24 pm

British actor Richard Johnson, whose career spanned film, theatre and TV, has died aged 87, his family has said.

Johnson made his film debut in the 1950s and featured in numerous films, alongside stars such as Frank Sinatra, Laurence Olivier and Charlton Heston.

A founder member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Johnson played several lead roles including Romeo and Mark Anthony in Julius Caesar.

He also appeared in several TV dramas such as Lewis and Silent Witness.

Johnson died after a short illness at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Chelsea, London. He is survived by his wife Lynne, who he married in 2004, and his four children.

He had been married several times and he met his second wife, American actress Kim Novak, when the pair starred in the 1965 film The Amorous Adventures of Moll Flanders.
