Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer have offered their tributes to the late actor and director
Christopher Plummer: I’m privileged to have known and worked with Richard Attenborough, a great British character actor of enormous range, a talented and devoted director, a caring, passionate, gentle and very dear man. I shall miss him dreadfully.
Shirley MacLaine: He made the world a better place. I wish he would come back. Even God is blessed to have him.

You always wanted to hold my hand when you were little.
I couldn't, you know.
I was afraid it would look funny.
I wanted to be close, you know and my father certainly
was never close with me.
God, I hope I wasn't like that.
