Veteran actor RON MOODY returned to his roots on Wednesday night (30Jun10) by joining the cast of West End musical Oliver! exactly 50 years after he first took to the stage as Fagin.
Moody was the first actor play the villainous pick-pocket boss in the musical adaptation of Charles DICkens' classic tale Oliver Twist, which premiered in London on 30 June, 1960.
The 86 year old went on to reprise the character in the 1968 film version alongside Oliver Reed, which earned Moody an Academy Award nomination.
He stepped on stage in the West End once again on Wednesday, joining the cast of the musical at the British capital's Theatre Royal Drury Lane to celebrate the show's 50th anniversary.
The actor read a speech at the end of the production and even treated the audience to a rendition of Fagin's famous tune Pick A Pocket Or Two, prompting a standing ovation from the delighted crowd.
Moody was last seen as Fagin in a brief five-week run in London in 1983.
