That sucks.

May you rest in peace, John Hurt. I'll always remember you any time I see one of characters you played.

Rest in Peace John Hurt

1940-2017

John Hurt was an Iconic actor from many films, tv series, Etc. from 1984, the Elephant Man, and Watership Down. Such as Richard Adams, he too lived a long life and with a career that lasted more than 50 years. May he be in peace. Thank you for all the works you worked shared with us, John Hurt. We'll be praying for you. :( This Saddening.

Now you are in a better world. He lived many years, that is the most important thing. Now you find all the legends that made this a better place, like Richard Adams.

He was great in the movies I saw him in aside the voice of Hazel...in ALIEN and in ROB ROY and the ELEPHANT MAN. So many greats passed away in 2017.
