Legendary British actor (and Hollywood legend) Sir John Hurt has apparently passed away at the age of 77. Cause of death: pancreatic cancer.
He was a two-time Oscar-nominated actor: for his roles in The Elephant Man (scene below) and Midnight Express.
But most people will remember him from Alien (watch his famous scene below: VIEWER ADVISORY), three Harry Potter films (scene below) and V for Vendetta. I just saw him in the Oscar-nominated Jackie the other day (he was amazing).
Hurt was knighted just two years ago: he was a UK citizen.
