Terrence Hardiman Death And Obituary – I feel like a significant portion of my life has been stolen away by the devastating news that Terrence Hardiman has passed away. He wasn’t given the moniker “THE DEMON HEADMASTER” until much later in his lengthy career than that when he had already accomplished a great deal.
We both played characters in the 1980s television show “The Charmer,” and in the years that followed, I would occasionally run across him at various gatherings. We were both working on the show at the time. He told me that he and the other actors had no concept that they were changing how Shakespeare is produced while they were rehearsing for Peter Brook’s acclaimed 1970 production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM; to them, it was simply another job.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Brook was performed on stage in 1970. Shakespeare’s A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM, staged by Brook, is regarded as one of the best examples of how Shakespeare may be transformed for the stage. He’d played a part in the play at one point. He was not just a nice man, but a very skilled actor in his own right. He’ll be sorely missed.
I believe I can confidently say that I speak for the entire generation of young people born in the 1990s, including myself, and that The Demon Headmaster has most certainly made an appearance in our nightmares. Andy, it makes my heart so pleased to hear that you had such a great time working with him because it makes my heart so happy to hear that you had such a nice experience working with him.
