Saddened by news of the death of Clive Scott, a legendary South African actor, a kind hearted friendly man who seemed always to be in a good mood, and always with a kind word.— Peter Terry (@PeterTerry3) July 28, 2021
Clive was such a generous, warm and loving man. I only worked with him once and that was when he played the Major General in Pirates. He was so funny when he fumbled on the tongue twisters. One of the most loved people in the industry. https://t.co/hLYTVeVdtM— Andre Schwartz (@Andre_Schwartz) July 28, 2021
