Film stars, friends and family remember Paddington Bear author Michael Bond

14 Novembre 2017

Mr Bond, who died in June, at 91, was a BBC studio cameraman when in 1958 he published his first Paddington story, A Bear Called Paddington.

Bond's daughter Karen Jankel led the tributes, describing her father as a "master of one-liners", who could see the humour in any situation and had "a twinkle in his eye".

HarperCollins Children's Books executive publisher Ann-Janine Murtagh added: "We are deeply honoured to be publishing the final Paddington story from our most cherished author, Michael Bond".

Jankel said her father's "friendly demeanour would melt the hardest of hearts", and that "women had an unfortunate tendency to fall in love with him".

British actor Hugh Bonneville has joined hundreds of mourners at a memorial service for the creator of the marmalade-loving bear Paddington. "Despite this" he "only married twice", and his widow and his first wife were both at the service.

Stars of the Paddington movies, Hugh Bonneville, Madeleine Harris and Samuel Joslin, were in attendance.

"I was particularly pleased by the idea that Michael had it in his head, when making decisions, 'what would Paddington do?' I think that would be a good tattoo for all of us".

The service came a week after Bond's new book was announced at St. Paul's.
