It is obviously impossible to do justice to a career of the length and distinction of Paul Rogers' in a single article. There were, however, two omissions in the one you published (11 October), writes Timothy Gee. There was no reference to his work in films; I recall sitting through the credits on Carol Reed's version of Our Man in Havana to learn the name of the actor who had impressed me in a small but vital scene. Paul Rogers' name was known to me; this was a first encounter with an impressive talent. Other distinguished directors for whom he worked subsequently included Charles Crichton (twice), Ken Hughes and Peter Ustinov.

He had a flair for comedy and was equally at home in classical repertoire and the avant-garde but was best known internationally for his work in films. In Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire and Faraway, So Close! he played the ironically detached and tragic angel Cassiel, and in the epic Second World War U-boat drama Das Boot he was a troubled lieutenant.
