    comma with relative

    Dear teachers,

    Sould I put a comma before "who" here ?

    He became a familiar figure to the actors,who would stop and speak to him.

    All the best,
    Hela

    Re: comma with relative

    With the comma = two separate concepts - he is known to the actors; the actors stopped and spoke to him

    Without the comma = one linked action - those actors who stopped and spoke to him were the actors that recognised him.
