Folk Horror Revival are saddened to hear of the death of the great actor Peter Vaughan, a firm favourite of ours for his roles in Straw Dogs, A Warning to the Curious, Symptoms, Fanatic, The Crucible and many other films and TV shows.
For our Field Studies book, we sent a list of questions to Peter and received in reply very brief answers in a spidery hand. For which he can be very much excused having worked into his 90’s. So instead the interview was turned into the tribute below.
Having sent Peter a copy of the essay he asked to buy a copy of our book, for which he sent in the post $25 in $1 notes. All the more unusual as both Peter and I were living in Britain.
A Paen to Peter Vaughan
