John Hurt passed away today, just five days after his 77th birthday. Best known as John Merrick in The Elephant Man, Winston Smith in Nineteen Eighty-Four, The War Doctor in Doctor Who, Kane in Alien, Adam Sutler in V For Vendetta or maybe even Mr Ollivander from Harry Potter.. What I am trying to say is that he is in absolutely everything.
John Hurt suffered from pancreatic cancer that went into remission in 2015, it is unclear at the time of writing this whether his death occurred from complications with the disease.
John Hurt was an enormously talented man, and will be missed.
As Beckett said, it’s not enough to die, one has to be forgotten as well
