Deal-based retired actor and Eastenders star Hywel Bennett has died aged 73.
Bennett was also known for starring in the 60s film Virgin Soldiers and for taking the title role of Shelley in the television series broadcast in the late 70s and early 80s.
A strikingly handsome figure as a young man, he excelled equally on stage, TV and film and in comedy as much as he did in the darker, more psychological roles.
Bennett was born in Garnant, Carmathenshire, in 1944, the son of Sarah Gwen and Gorden Bennett, and grew up in London.
