Beloved actor and comedian John Sessions, best known for his work on the British version of ‘Whose Line is it Anyway,’ has passed away at the age of 67.
Session reportedly suffered a heart attack in London on Monday.
As The New York Post reports:
In a statement, agent Alex Irwin confirmed Sessions’ death.
Sessions’ friend Ronni Ancona paid tribute to him today.
She told the Telegraph: “He was that rare commodity, a towering intellect who was able to translate his vast intelligence into highly-accessible, unadulterated comedy.”
Ancona said his performances were “like watching a high-wire act without a net — the equivalent of chomping into a dangerous Japanese fish”.
