Another veteran actor passed. Sigh, making me realize my own mortality.

RIP John.

I think my favorite of his roles was Montrose in "Rob Roy." But he will forever be enshrined for his performance in the chest bursting scene of "Alien." I think that changed sci-fi/horror forever.


RIP.

That's one of the scariest scenes I've seen.

Don't forget his role as Winston Smith in 1984. Really nailed it, like every other performance he did. One of my favorite actors.

No matter how many times I watch that scene, I still get nervous beforehand. His portrayal of the agony seems so real.

I know I'm late on it but one other word on John Hurt is this: He played The Horned King, the evil villain in Disney's animated film The Black Cauldron. He will be missed forever.
