Someone sorely missed to this day and someone one was very fortunate to know through his Fanderson involvement. Won’t likely see his kind any more. Cheers Eddie.
Mr. Bishop was my best friend’s dad (Georgina). I’m walking down memory lane. Sorry I have not photos
Thank you for leaving a comment. I was a great fan of Mr Bishop and admired all his work, particularly his audio recordings. I should add photos of those as well!
I was a great fan of Ed Bishop. I am an alumni of Boston University also and I acted in theater groups there. His was the quintessential American accent. I am from the Northeast also like Ed. He was a tremendous actor.
A beautiful tribute to a wonderful actor who as not afraid to turn his hand to many acting styles..I was a film the other day on YouTube called The Dream Machine. A cult film now I believe. Written by Michael Billington and Ed had a part in that. It’s main man is singer David Essex.. Worth a watch..Bless You Ed for all the joy you gave to me growing up watching up in black and white and now in colour…
