The world has lost another giant of the big screen. Oscar nominated, and with a career spanning six decades, JOHN HURT delivered countless unforgettable performances with captivating gravitas and grit including The Elephant Man, Harry Potter, and Alien.
Speaking to the radio times about his feelings on death he said:
“I hope I shall have the courage to say, ‘Vroom! Here we go! Let’s become different molecules!”
He also had this gem of wisdom which beautifully sums up his perfectionist nature;
Someone asked me, “Is there anything you regret?” and I said, “Everything!” Whatever you do, there was always a better choice.
John Hurt 1940 – 2017
A rare sort.
