Vale Marcel Marceau

At age 84 the man who was possibly *the* best known mime artist around the world has finally died.

Marcel Marceau

Marcel lost his father to the invading German forces in WWII and joined first the resistance and then the Free French Army. It wasn’t until 1946 that he finally began to study acting and mime but by 1947 he had already created his famous character ‘Bip’ which would stay with thru his career.

He was a great character but has passed the baton to many others who seek to emulate him and his skills… strangely however, I can’t think of any of their names! When I think of mime… I think of Marcel Marceau!
