    RIP John Hurt 1940-2017

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-38778145

    Rest in Peace for our beloved War Doctor, Mr Ollivander, Elephant Man and Adam Sutler.

    Even though I'm only watched him on Harry Potter, Elephant Man and V for Vendetta? His career are tremendous success with a lot of Talents to portray a character. I hope this not a continuation of 2016 madness.

    NOT QUITE MY TEMPO

    I will always remember his roles as Adam Sutler in V for Vendetta and Dr. Trevor Broom in Hellboy.
    Hurt, you'll be deeply missed.

    I was sad to see this but I figured it was imminent when I read he had pancreatic cancer last year. Wonderful actor and another iconic loss for us.

    Not seen him in Alien? It's a classic I recommend!

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, which is a pity because this week the National Association of Beholders wrote to tell me that I've got a face like a rucksack full of dented bells.

    I know he had a varied career, but he will always be Jim Henson's Storyteller to me. RIP, Mr. Hurt.

    He was a terrific actor, especially in Alien, The Elephant Man, and more recently as The War Doctor in Doctor Who.

    I enjoyed his cameo in Spaceballs too.

    A lot of people don't know it, but he also did voice work. Unfortunately, the only one I can think of right now is The Black Cauldron which was not a huge fan favorite. He was really great.

    I haven't beaten anyone with a chair today. I would say my people skills are improving.

    Wonderfully understated in a small but impactful role in CONTACT. R.I.P., Sir John.

    He was also the voice of the dragon on the BBC series Merlin.

    Oh that's right! I forgot, he voiced The Horned King.
