The beloved actor has passed away after a battle with both cancer and intestinal complaint in recent years.
John Hurt had a career spanning six decades and has been a staple of British film throughout his time in the industry with roles in movies such as The Elephant Man, Alien and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
The actor also received a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II in 2015 and has recently been featured as the Priest in the biopic focussing on the widow of JFK, Jackie. A heartwarming role that becomes a focal point during the movie as Jackie Kennedy looks for answers and guidance after her husbands public assasinaion.
Hurt is survived by his wife of 12 years Anne Rees-Myers. We would like to offer our thoughts and prayers to the loved ones of Sir John Hurt at this difficult time.
