Stuart Organ cause of death

Stuart Organ breathed his last from a cause of death that is yet to be made available to the public.

Fans have since taken to social media to pay tribute to the late actor, with one writing: “Can’t believe it, that fella helped shape my childhood. Legend.” A second wrote: “He was fantastic.” While a third typed: “RIP Stuart,” alongside a heart emoji.

Another took to Facebook, penning: “It is with sadness that we learn of the death of Stuart Organ, aged 72. From Grange Hill to Dr Who, from The Bill to London’s Burning – and so much more. RIP Stuart Organ.” “RIP Stuart Organ aka Mr Robson of #grangehill part of 90s childhood gone,” commented another.

“#pointlesscelebrities #GrangeHill I reckon most of these Ex Grange Hill Actors and Actresses are between Five to Ten Years Older than me. They haven’t aged badly at all. I have seen Younger People than all of Them and Younger than myself that look much Older than Them all.” said a second. While a third went on to add: “A couple of the ex-pupils look older than the ex-teacher! #GrangeHill #PointlessCelebrities.”

A third shocked fan tweeted: “Now I feel really old! #grangeHill #pointlesscelebrities – but what’s puzzling me is how Mr Robson has not aged a day!” Stuart and Francesca found themselves in the final round and won a whopping £2,750 for their chosen charities. Although many younger audiences may not recognise Stuart from Grange Hill or Brookside, they will instantly know his voice

Stuart appeared on Pointless Celebrity in 2018 alongside Francesca Martinez who played Rachel Burns. Despite years of being away from screens, fans insisted that he looked almost identical to his character, having not aged a day.

One fan said: “Not sure what’s more frightening watching celebrity @TVsPointless Grange Hill being 40 years old, or Mr Robson not aging a day @richardosman #GrangeHill #pointlesscelebrities #pointless.”

In recent years, he’s appeared as a voiceover artist on cartoons and video games including Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Away from this, he is a familiar voice on London’s Underground system where he can be heard announcing stations, different lines, late arrivals and also telling passengers to mind the gap between the platform and train.

Stuart’s last acting credit was in 2023, taking on the voice role of David in The Gnomes Great Adventure. But in 2020, he appeared in a 2020 episode of Bridgerton as a doctor.
