    Oh, sorry to hear of his passing. He always seemed to have good things to say about Errol (he even once called Errol “the master of the sword”), and not only did he work with Errol, but he also trained Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom for the “Pirates” films, and Viggo Mortensen for The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    Thank you Bob for letting us know!
    It is very sad to receive the news that another person having known and worked with Errol has passed!
