I am so sorry about the loss of Mike. The Coal Miners Daughter and UP are wonderful movies. The Apted family has my deepest condolences. I pray that you will be surrounded continuously with love and support. And, as you go through this difficult time, may Almighty God give you “everlasting comfort” (2 Thess. 2:16).

In 1974 my son was a child actor in the childhood series "A great day for Bonzo.one day we were way out in the country for filming a long way from our hotel in Alderly Edge, I was in charge of my sons period costume, of which the hat was important, on this particular day I left "the hat"behind bringing filming to a halt, which meant a speedy drive back to the hotel to get it.
I expected to be told in no uncertain terms the havoc I had caused, but instead Michael was a perfect gentleman ,and let the incident pass but I am sure he must have been furious It showed what an understanding and a
nice person he was.
My deepest sympathy to his family and close friends
I still have the video of the film but sadly cannot play it for my son because of its age
