Old man with Dementia
Since he is now old, it's no surprise that whenever I see him, he is always casted in a role that involves him being an old man with dementia. Although his may seem like the norm to expect from an old man, he does do a good job in playing the role - he always makes it seem convincing, and to be honest, it is difficult to professional make a sickness look real without getting out of role. Not only is dementia hard to mimic, it also requires a lot of effort in expressing the different expression of emotions based on the situation.
My sister has met him in real life though, and although he seems to have a rather chummy look, my sister said that the first impression she had of him was that of a can't be bothered pride. Upon approaching him to take a picture, the friendly face that the audience is accustomed to came up as he gladly obliged to take a picture with him.
