    Joe Ayya was the best actor whom i have seen in film industry in Sri Lanka.Those days people gathered around TVs and film theaters to see his diverse and best performances of acting.He immensely contributed to art,culture, films and theater work of Sri Lankan art history.No doubt this type of actor can be considered as the national asset of any country.
    He was a silent and peaceful person.
    May he attain Nibbana!!!!!

    Great Artist... Best ever.. ..

    K.Sivapalan Thursday, 22 September 2011 08:09 AM

    A great actor who could hold his own with the best actors of the world, be it Anthony Quin or Rex Harrison. I remember going to his annex in Nugegoda in the late sixties with my good friend late (Judge) Upali Lenawa to take him to Trinco for a show and spending some time with him at Nager Kovil in the North during the sh0oting of the film, 'Vali Kathara by Mr.Nihalsinghe..Although he started off as a comedian he showed his mettle as a great character actor. Good Bye Mr.Joe Abeywickrama.

    An Icon of the Sinhala Film industry. The characters he portrayed always caused us to think. We will miss his professionalism.

    munidasa Thursday, 22 September 2011 08:44 AM

    He is the one of the greatest actors of all decades. As a human nature he was real human who sacrificed for welfare of our presently downed cinema. He introduced many stars to our screen. He should be remembered for many many years.

    With the demise of Mr.Joe Abeywicrama, versatile actor in a
    class by himself, there will be a huge void in sinhala cinema
    that could not be refilled for a very long period.

    JAGAPRIYAN Thursday, 22 September 2011 12:47 PM

    Infact he has won the international Award for his role in Purahanda Kaluwara. His death is not only a loss for Sinhala Film Industry..
