This. What to Say When You’ve Got Absolutely Nothing Intelligent to Add
Ray Lonnen - 18 May 1940 - 11 July 2014.
Ray Lonnen passed away yesterday after a three-year battle with cancer.
He’s not known for many roles, to tell the truth. He’s best known to those of us who watched The Sandbaggers as Willie Caine. He was charming, he was honest, he was funny, he was absolutely believable. He was the most human spy I’d ever seen on screen, big or small. Not the maudlin self-pity of George Smiley, nor the furious misogyny of James Bond. The one time Willie had a chance for romance, they both ended up with a broken heart. The scene in question had such an impact on me, I pretty much stole if for a bit in Lazarus #3.
I always hoped that, if Queen & Country ever made it to whatever screen, I’d be able to convince whoever was making it to give Lonnen a part, however small. Just a nod to Willie, who is Tara’s father in so very many ways. Just a moment in the Ops Room, something. Just a chance to say thank you.
I suppose what I’m saying is that he gave me, and many others, joy. I didn’t know him, and now I shall never have the honor. But I am sincerely grateful for what he shared with the world, what he shared with me when I was fifteen, sixteen, and looking for those things in the world that would speak to me.
Rest in peace, Mister Lonnen.

And also, I don’t know so much what the point is in making fun of supposedly lame characters like D-Man is. For all that people may laugh at him, he’s proven himself much more heroic on many more occasions on those that would call him foolish.
