RIP John Hurt

Some very sad news today – one of Britain’s most versatile, fascinating actors, Sir John Hurt has died. Grown ups will, of course, remember him from his memorable performances in classic movies such as 10 Rillington Place, Alien, The Naked Civil Servant, The Elephant Man, 1984 and Scandal to name just a few, but younger viewers will have had a glimpse of his acting talents in Indiana Jones And The Crystal Skull and the Harry Potter movies, where he starred as Olivander, and they will have also heard his distinctive voice in other films – he provided the narrator’s voice for The Tigger Movie and, of course, voiced characters in The Black Cauldron, The Gruffalo and Watership Down.
