    My prayers go out to his family. He will always hold a special place in the memory of this Narnia fan. I remember the days, where I would race home from school and eagerly watch the as the next enstallment of Narnia aired on tv. My favourite scene was when Lucy met Mr Tumnus.

    Mr Perry…further up and further in!

    God Bless.

    I do or did think that Jeffrey Perry did play a nice role in playing the part of Mr. Tumnus-the fawn.

    Who deleted my comment, it was the first one, and I offered my comdolences and didn't say anything wrong! What's with this?

    I offer my most heartfelt condolences for his family and friends. I just hope that they will be able to find the cause of such a beloved actor. I do hope that he was murdered like Bob Crane was, that story was enough to make me upset but to have another actor murdered like him would be more than a little heart-breaking and I could not handle another tragic tale as that. I do wish I could offer more heartfelt words in a poem written personally by me to his grieving family and friends.
