    To be fair, he had pancreatic cancer so I'm surprised he lasted as long as he did - I've lost three friends to it, and it is a truly awful affliction.

    His best role for me is a toss up between 'The Elephant Man' and '1984' - the latter alongside Richard Burton.

    He probably suffered more on-screen deaths than pretty much any other actor, too.

    He will be missed.

    He was also in Merlin voicing the dragon.

    This did upset me, as I really enjoyed some of his work. He will be missed.

    Why? Why John Hurt? Why did it have to be him? I was planning on meeting him and I never will. He was a legendary actor and I loved his work.:(
