Jack’s agent, Jill McCullough, first confirmed his death to the Evening Standard. McCullough said the actor passed away in a hospital in Britain while his family was stuck in quarantine in Australia.

“Andrew lived on one of the oldest working houseboats on the Thames, he was fiercely independent but madly in love with his wife; also a dialect coach: Gabrielle Rogers,” McCullough told the outlet.

“Andrew was full of life, he was tall and striking with flowing white hair. You wouldn’t miss him if he walked into a room.”
