The actor explains that he did everything in his power to help her. He moved into her flat which was just a few doors down from the house he shared with his wife. The 55-year-old made her watermelon smoothies and attached a walking stick and climbing rope to her bed, so she could pull herself out of it.

‘The relationship isn’t over, the relationship continues. Death doesn’t stop you from having a relationship with someone. They just don’t answer back.’
