After collapsing  on Jan 19th during a UK production of King Lear, the first play he’s done with his daughter, doctors have advised him to withdraw from the play because of his heart condition. Terence Wilton will take his place.

Why Americans Should Care: I know you weren’t planning to see the play in the UK, but Brian Blessed is an outstanding actor and voice actor. We’re all wishing a speedy recovery for him. He was on a recent Christmas special of the Infinite Monkey Cage and an even better episode about space tourism, which you do not want to miss. Give this clip a listen
