15. John Le Mesurier


I am on a roll. :D

1. Michael Hordern.

Now I shall wait to see what's correct and what isn't before I continue.

Pervinca Took 03-01-2020 10:24 AM

MICHAEL HORDERN (Gandalf): The first – an archangel – who’s guarding a vase?
2. The second – spends more than an age at his house?
CHRISTOPHER FAIRBANK (Shagrat): The third graced our screens in ‘Auf Wiedersehen, Pet!’
ROBERT STEPHENS (Aragorn): The fourth was a Prince on a Veronese set.
5. The fifth, though no hobbit, loves victuals and drink,
PAULINE LETTS (Ioreth): The sixth – Walford matriarch allows us – I think!
7. The seventh played quack to Ross Poldark’s old flame -
8. The eighth, (flag the second), definitive Thain!*
LEONARD FENTON (Daddy Twofoot): The ninth, (flag the fourth), a Walfordian quack -
10. The tenth – Tucker’s sister? (Once a river flows back).
11. In eleven, a saint meets a foundling most poor -
WILLIAM NIGHY: In twelve, it seems Shakespeare’s nearby, but wherefore? **
13. Thirteen is a saint, and a visionary too, **
MARION DIAMOND (Galadriel): Fourteen is a maid, and a gemstone most true.
15. Fifteen: Eighties game, plus a bounder and measure, **
DAVID COLLINGS (Legolas): Sixteen plays the son of an elf who loves treasure.
17. For seventeen, no spade? Petrified, but not dead!
JENNY LEE (Shelob): Eighteen, (flag the sixth), Attercop! Poison-head!
19. The nineteenth, twice queenly, a pen or car-stopper?
20. With twenty as glue, the tale won’t come a cropper! **
ANTHONY HYDE (Eomer): Twenty-one is no Jekyll. On horseback he jogs,
RICHARD O'CALLAGHAN (Merry): Twenty-two steers a barge, or plays fair Lewis Boggs!
23. This sibilant genius is our twenty-three - ***
24. Two dozen! - a Potter, and Old English sea!

The whole means a drama, of quality rare,
Where thesps and their ilk show considerable flair!

See notes below the password in my last post. Stephen Thorne played Treebeard, but he isn't the answer. I'd never even heard of a foundling named Thorne until you posted that link.

EDIT: I'd forgotten about Simon Says! I was referring to an electronic memory game with four different coloured lights that flashed, (each played a different note, too). You had to repeat the sequence that Simon played exactly, or he/it made a rude noise at you

I am re-watching the hilarious 80's dramatisation of Tom Sharpe's 'Blott on the Landscape.' Simon Cadell is wonderful in it. He died tragically young. :( Celeborn in the BBC LOTR, but probably best known for playing Geoffrey Fairbrother in the holiday camp sitcom 'Hi De Hi.'
