GOODBYE AND FAREWELL MY FRIEND RIP - KEITH BUCKLEY 1941-2020
This is a tribute post to my close friend of 36 years, Keith Buckley. It is with great sadness to learn today that my friend has passed.
A BRITISH ACTOR
I met Keith when he joined my Wing Chun class in London in 1984, although he was initially my martial art student but we soon became very good friends. I remember his role in the movie Excalibur (1981) which truly reflects his real life character. It was Keith that introduced me to the world of movie industry, where I met many interesting people.
A FIGHTER FOR THE UNDERDOGS
Keith was a man of principles, and always stood up against the unfair authorities. In Africa, when he was filming the movie Zulu, with Michael Caine. He rose against the mistreatments of some local children and protested, and was jailed for it.
In the 1970s and early 80s in UK, he was regularly involved in fighting (fists and battens) against the racists of the National Front organisation.
He was maverick badass, similar to his friend/colleague Oliver Reed. Both in the same era and circle as Michael Caine, Roger Moore and John Hurt.
AMUSING ENCOUNTER
It was around 1985/6 after the Wing Chun class, Keith and I went for a coffee in a cafe in Chiswick. We sat a few tables away from a couple in the corner. This couple kept looking at us, and I thought it was odd. Iíve seen the man somewhere before but didnít know where.
After an hour later this couple approached Keith, this man was very nervous. He greeted Keith and said he wasnít sure whether to say hello or run away. He said he was especially concerned that we were both in our martial arts tracksuits.
As it turned out this man was the movie star John Hurt. Apparently, they both had a big fall out and the last time they met several years ago, Keith hand was around his throat. However, the encounter was pleasant and they both made jokes out of it.
FAREWELL MEMOIRS
Those were some of the fond memories and there had been many more craziness and laughters.
Goodbye and travel onto your next journey, my friend Keith, RIP.

Just posting that Keith Buckley who played Lattimer in the house on Haunted Hill (Randall and Hopkirk) died on 2 Dec 2020 of pneumonia with covid complications, its a reliable source as his brother John told me today.

RIP

An amazing life. Glad to hear he was so active against the Nazis.
