>RIP Gary Coleman

>When I was a child, I used to really enjoy watching Diff’rent Strokes. I seem to remember it was on on a Friday tea time and the wee child actor Gary Coleman, who played Arnold, just made the show. He was so bright, so cheerful and charming, had incredibly good comic timing and brilliant facial expressions.

I was really gutted to hear that he died today after suffering a head injury. He’s the same age as me.

It’s a shame that in real life, he didn’t get as many lucky breaks as Arnold.

Here’s a clip of him at his best.
