Title role in 'Shrek' originally recalled (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

sir

Here is my best explanation:

'title' is the definition.

(seen before)

'role in 'shrek' originally recalled' is the subsidiary indication.

'originally' suggests taking the first letters.

'recalled' is a reversal indicator.

The initial letters of 'role in shrek' is 'ris'.

'ris' reversed gives 'sir'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for sir that I've seen before include "Title given to 10 Across", "... ___ John Major", "Honourable title", "Form of address for a knight", "Polite term of address for a man", "Male form of address", "Honorary male title", "Respectful address for a man", "Polite or formal address to male" and "Formal term of address".)
