Today, a great man and actor died. John hurt died of cancer at age 77. Some of his most iconic roles were as the mysterious Ollivander, and the The War Doctor in doctor who. RIP John Hurt, as another Harry Potter actor who died of cancer.

I probably saw him in more roles than I can remember right now. My earliest memory must be seeing him in the 1984 version of Orwell's "1984"....we watched that movie in school back in '85 or so and also read the book.

RIP John Hurt.

I haven't seen any of his earlier work except for Alien. I've seen some post Philosopher's Stone films but I remember him as Mr. Ollivander. RIP

I didn't know he was in Orwell's 1984! Should watch it!

I don't think I ever saw him outside of HP but I felt sad when I heard the news.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
