He leaves behind him an immense body of work: movies, stage performances, music, book narration, poetry and prose. When you saw “Jack, A Night On The Town With John Barrymore” you realised as he sang Nessun Dorma that this man could have been anything, done anything, and been one of the best. The mould is broken, we will never see his like again in the world.
He was the most honest, funny and intelligent man I have ever had the pleasure of knowing; he was my father and words cannot adequately express how proud I am of him. Before he died Nicol was able to finish the CD he had been working on, albeit slightly shorter than it might have been. In the coming month i hope to have it up here on his website.
If anyone would like to express their love or appreciation of Nicol, I would ask them to make a donation in his name -however small- to a charity for children suffering from cancer or other life threatening illnesses.
Nicol was a very private man, he didn’t want people to know that he was ill, he was hoping very much to come out the other side of his battle with “Seamus the Squamous” and bring some awareness to the plight of children suffering from the horrors of cancer in all its various forms.
Dad will live in the memory of all those who knew him, all those who were affected by a performance of his they saw, and all those he made laugh until they couldn’t breathe.
I love you Dad. Good game, sir, good game.]]>
Regarding the torrents, Bofors Gun, Ui and The Reckoning- I have found someone willing to torrent them for me, should any of you wish to do so as well I can try to send out a few copies.
I apologise again for the delays, my time is so limited right now, but in the next few months that should change.
Thanks for your patience,
PS i have the interview ready to be uploaded soon as well, so keep an eye out for that!]]>
I do have some promising news, however, and that is that in the next few weeks I will have completed a video interview with Nicol and several videos containing excerpts of almost all his movies, including the never before seen Berthold Brecht film Arturo Ui.
Also the next few months will see more music, prose, poetry and photographs of Nicol’s including audio clips from The Hobbit, Jack- A Night on the Town with John Barrymore, a reading of selected Lawrence Durrell, and other tidbits I’ve been able to dig up. So keep checking in, and thanks for visiting our newborn website!
All the best,
