Irish Actor Dies

8th October 2007

RTÉ reports that Irish actor Tom Murphy has died.

In 1998 he won a Tony Award for his role in the Druid Theatre Company production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane. He also appeared in Adam and Paul, Man About Dog, Intermission, Small Engine Repair and the RTÉ Television series Pure Mule.

Paying tribute, Druid’s Artistic Director Garry Hynes said: “All of us in Druid are terribly saddened by the premature death of Tom Murphy. Tom won a Tony Award on Broadway for his wonderful portrayal of ‘Ray Dooley’ in Martin McDonagh’s ‘The Beauty Queen of Leenane’. A wonderful colleague and friend, he will be much missed by his many friends in the film and theatre business.”
