There'll no doubt be constant refs to Pink Panther (in which he was as reliably superb as always as the insane Dreyfus) but he'd a fabuously long career, stealing scenes and owning the screen. Ladykillers, Hell Drivers, Chase a Crooked Shadow. On TV he had The Human Jungle.

Oddly I was just thinking of him the other day, meaning to look up he was taking his role in Gambit.

Actually, I always remember him best from The Dead Zone.

I love him in The Ladykillers - particularly the way he tucks his violin case under his arm.

A sad loss - but I'll say it now, he's one of the people I had assumed had passed away some years ago, sorry to say...

Always liked Herbert Lom, a wonderful character actor that had great dramatic and comic timing. A very good innings though, and he went peacefully in his sleep, what more could you ask for.

Rest In Peace Herbert Lom.

Yeah, me too, I think. Never really watched the Pink Panther films growing up. The adaptation of a Stephen King novel starring Chistopher Walken, however, was right up my street. And Lom was great in it.

Rest in peace, Mr. Lom.

I always remember him from Spartacus.
