Appeal to help family of actor Clifford Rose with care home fees. In 1960 the 32 year old actor Clifford Rose joined the Royal Shakespeare Company, appearing opposite Patrick Wymark in The Taming of the Shrew and Twelfth Night. The photo, by Zoe Dominic, shows him as Verges in Much Ado About Nothing.
Clifford Rose, who appeared in Callan and Secret Army, continued to act until 2020, appearing as the Dean of Windsor in ‘The Crown’. Due to ill health, he was forced to move into a nursing home earlier this year. His family have found him a place in Denville Hall, the nursing home for those in the entertainment industry, which he loves. However, he is only funded for a month. So his family have launched an appeal. “If you have ever enjoyed my father’s work, ” his son Duncan said, “or appreciate the value of veteran actors in our cultural life, please consider supporting him in his time of need.”
