It is with great sadness that we bring you the news of Islwyn Morris’ passing at the age of 90.
Best known for his role in Satellite City as Idris (Dad), he was the star of the show in so many ways and to my mind will always be the reason I remembered Satellite City.
Boyd Clack, who wrote and starred in Satellite City, told the BBC that Swansea-born Mr Morris was “a great actor” and “a great man.”
“Islwyn will always be remembered not only for his notable acting talent but for also being a true gentleman”
“He played my father in Satellite City. I lost my father when I was young and I thought of him in a few ways as being a father figure.
“For the first time he became recognised by people in Wales – he thought it was funny, he quite enjoyed it.
“He was very much a family man and his faith meant a lot to him. Being with him was a constant pleasure.”
- Boyd Clack
Islwyn was born in Swansea and starred in Welsh langauge drama Pobol y Cwm for over 25 years.
Islwyn, you will be missed, you will go down in history as one of Wales’ best talents.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and family.
