Please note that messages containing statements regarding individuals may be removed at the request of the individual in question.
After seeing that message at the end of crystal maze (the one which stated he had died of traumatic head injuries (I have the episode credits in question on VHS)). I was surprised to see him at a RHPS re-union in 2010, funny how many people come back from the dead these days ;)
Hi, i have his harmonica from crystal maze which he give me 18 years ago when i went to visit, any1 have an idea where i can get it authorised as his with certifiacte etc..
always something creepy about him when he did the maze with little kiddies.
is that the reason the brilliant ed tudor pole got his job?
Richard o Brian is currently (OCT 2009) starring in "The Stripper" at The Kings Theatre in Glasgow...He wrote the lyrics for this show and is fantastic as Mr Arkwright.

It wasn't even his nephew. It was a contestant on the Crystal Maze called Mac. And the programme was dedicated to him as he was in it.
Actually, his nephew died in a motorbike accident.

The Hottest info in June 2008, is a new TV show called Richard O Brian's Dead Strange.
It's about strange unusual and alternative death related tales......... comming soon I hope, as I supply themed hearse. The car that says thank you and celebrates a loved ones life. The alternatine to black and a natural choice.
that message about someone dying in a motorcycle accident was about one of the contestants featured on that particular episode.
yeah my fiance also remembers the message about him being killed in a motorbike accident weird
Richard will be reprising his role as the Child Catcher for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang's last 2 weeks of UK tour, in September, and later this year will be doing the role for a month in Singapore.
Richard O'BRIEN is alive and well, and appeared last month (april) as the usherette in the RHS tour at Wimbledon. He's not actually touring with them but if you search his name on WireImage you'll see him as usherette. He says he's reworking the Stripper (one of his old unheard-of musicals)with hopes of getting it into production soon.
a few years back after watching a repeat of some of the early episodes of "The Crystal Maze" a statement popped up saying that Richard O Brian had died in a motorbike accident and since then Ed Tudor Pole took over the Maze lead- but then shocked i was to learn that he was to be appearing in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I was shocked and quite puzzled as to why the editors of the programme would make a statement about something that was not true!!
Spotted at Charity event in London. Said he was writing and that Crystal Maze was fun!

I was lucky enough to meet Mr O'Brien last year when I was working. I was performing close up magic at an event and he was one of their guests of honour. I did not get chance to speak to him much about what he was up to and he was a little vague, he said he had various projects in the pipeline.
Was that him on the Childrens Party at the Palace BBC 25.6.06, playing the child catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang !!!!?
No, Ed Tudor Pole was better!
He also played the bed guy in a film that was out a few years back called 'Dark City', it was quite good. Had him, Keifer Sutherland, Rufus Sewell, Jennifer Connely, Angel out or Home and Away and William Hurt.
Richard O'Brien played the Child Catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in the West End for a bit, and also presented an award at the British Soap Awards 2004.
Look people, Richard O'Brien (thats right O'BRIEN with an e...plebs)wrote Rocky Horror (with only two chords, some stones records and a dream), made a hollywood film of Rocky Horror, starred in Crystal Maze for what seemed like centuries (and was much better than Ed tudor-Pole, it must be mentioned...wheres he?)and lots of other stuff too I'm sure. The bloke deserves a break ok? What do you want, blood?
Rachel is a cowgirl
Richard O'Brian is touring with the cast of the Rocky horror picture show all over the uk and usa
