  1. Goodbye and RIP John Hurt :(

    Who said of Downton Abbey: “I just think it is poxy! I mean, I'm sorry, but it is rotten writing and rotten acting.“

    And also this: “I remember talking to Olivier when we were doing Lear. He said: 'When it comes to your obituary they will only mention two or three performances, and they will be the ones that defined you early on.' I said: 'What will they write about you?' Richard III and Wuthering Heights_', he replied. And he was right.”

    So today you’ll hear a lot about his death scene in Alien, and his role as The Elephant Man, but let’s also remember we’ve lost a man who played The Doctor, who voiced the dragon in Merlin, Winston from the film 1984, Mr Olivander from the Harry Potter films, and the narrator of Dogville (which imho is one of most horrific studies into human nature ever conceived).

      Oh man! I almost didn’t believe it – I had to google it. The world lost an amazing actor yesterday.

      I am positively heartbroken about this. He was a magnificent actor, utterly brilliant in his portrayals. Does anyone remember him as Quentin Crisp int he The Naked Civil Servant? 

      Only the good ones lately… :*(

      I don’t remember it, but I’ve just seen a clip. I’m going to have to hunt that one down. Amazing!
