Subject: Freddie Jones: Tributes paid to Emmerdale and Elephant Man star

Written By: Philip Eno on 07/10/19 at 4:49 pm

Tributes have been paid to the British actor Freddie Jones, known to millions as Sandy Thomas in Emmerdale, following his death at the age of 91. His agent Lesley Duff said he died on 9 July after a short illness. She remembered Jones - the father of fellow actor Toby - as "a much loved and admired actor, known for his triumphs in theatre, film and TV." His many feature films include the David Lynch films Dune, Wild at Heart and The Elephant Man. In the latter he played Bytes, the circus ringmaster who cruelly exploits the physically deformed John Merrick. He also appeared in such horror films as Frankenstein Must be Destroyed and The Satanic Rites of Dracula as well as 1983 sci-fi Krull.
