Former teenage actor George Armstrong, best known for UK Grange Hill died, aged 60.
He died on July 11 after a “long battle with leukaemia,” according to British reports.
Armstrong played Alan Humphries Grange Hill between 1978 and 1982 and again in 1983 in the spin-off series Tucker’s Luck.
His first acting role was as Hubert Lane in Only William in 1977 with the last role of PC Driscoll in The bill in 1989.
He later worked as the theater’s technical director.
Armstrong opened up about his journey with cancer in 2018 while raising money for charity and used Facebook to thank the NHS.
She said on Facebook: “Those of you who know me know I’m no good at sharing my personal life on social media, but today I’m making an exception for a truly wonderful cause. Two years ago I was diagnosed with leukemia and spent 4 months battling it.
“I was able to get into remission but unfortunately in February of this year I relapsed and have spent most of the last 3 months in the hospital,” he continued.
“It’s hard, it’s tiring, but despite the great scare I’m still here and I’m still fighting…Every day I sit here in hospital I am reminded of the incredible work the NHS does. But they can’t do it alone and this is where some amazing charities help.
