“Trigger” Actor Roger Lloyd-Pack Dies, Aged 69

Roger Lloyd-Pack, best known as TV’s Trigger in Only Fools and Horses and the quirky farmer Owen from The Vicar of Dibley has passed away, reports BBC news.

Father of Emily Lloyd, star of Wish You Were Here and known to Who fans as the creator of the alt. universe Cybermen, John Lumic passed from pancreatic cancer, aged just 69.

Born in Islington, north London in 1944, he was the son of Hammer horror actor Charles Lloyd Pack.

Sir David Jason spoke of his sadness at the news, calling his co-star “a very quiet, kind and unassuming actor who was a pleasure to work with”.

“Although he played the simple soul of Trigger in Only Fools and Horses, he was a very intelligent man and a very fine actor capable of many roles,” continued the actor, who played Derek ‘Del Boy’ Trotter in the show.

“I shall remember him with fondness and for all the good times we had together.”

We’ve collected together 5 of Lloyd-Pack’s most memorable moments in a video tribute.
