John Hurt – Actor – 1940 – 2017

Starting with “A Man For All Seasons”, and advancing through “Elephant Man”, “Naked Civil Servant”, “10 Rillington Place”, “Scandal” etc., to H. Potter Esq and Indiana Jones, Hurt was a man of a thousand characters, often spooky, occasionally truly frightening and his appearance in more than one hundred feature films means that he has also often appeared on our site.

Knighted in 2015, John was still John to his friends, colleagues and, more importantly his film and production crews.

We’ll miss him. 

RIP
