John Hurt Dead At 77

Though he of course had scads of other great roles, I'm partial to his reading of Aragorn in Bakshi's LOTR.

Farewell, sir.

A chameleon of an actor. Loved his roles in A Man For All Seasons, Midnight Express and Elephant Man.

Andsigil is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
My favorites were his roles as the Marquess of Montrose in "Rob Roy" and as Winston Smith in "1984".

Snowdog has just left Hobbiton.
Pipe Caligula & The War Doctor.

John Hurt was such a great and versatile actor! I loved his portrayal of Caligula in 'I Claudius', and as the 'War Doctor' of Dr Who. The roles already mentioned were epic as well! Rest in Peace John.

It was weird to see this John Hurt thread pop up this morning. I though he had died again.
