Actor, playwright Bille Brown dies from bowel cancer

WHEN Bille Brown went to university, he intended to become a teacher, but turned to acting instead.

His generation learned from literature, music, history and touring companies, he recalled in November: "Bugs Bunny was as good an acting teacher as [US drama coach] Lee Strasberg."

Brown died on Sunday at the Holy Spirit Northside Hospital in Chermside, Brisbane, two days after hosting his 61st birthday from his hospital bed, which became a final farewell.

His sister Rita and friends were with him at the end.

Brown had been fighting bowel cancer for 12 months.
