Scottish actor Ewan Mcgregor is among the famous faces who have paid tribute to The Professionals star Lewis Collins following his death this week (beg25Nov13).

The beloved British actor passed away at home in Los Angeles on Wednesday (27Nov13). He was 67.

Collins was best known for playing tough guy William Bodie on the hit crime show, and Hollywood star Ewan MCGregor, who grew up watching the Tv series, was sorry to hear news of his death, writing in a post on Twitter.com, "I am sorry to hear the sad news that Lewis Collins has passed away. Grew up watching him. Hard man!"

Singer/actor Gary Kemp insists Collins should have played James Bond, a role the actor auditioned for several times. He writes, "The man who should have been Bond. Rip Lewis Collins. You were supercool."

While 1980s pop star-turned-actor Luke Goss shared similar sentiments, "Lewis Collins passed today, have always been a huge fan. The man who should have been Bond. A real loss Rip."

Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright posted a video of The Professionals opening credits, adding, "Farewell to Mr. Lewis Collins. This was perhaps the most exciting 45 seconds of my youth... It's still exciting."
