It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that acting icon Sir John Hurt has passed away at the age of 77 years old.

Hurt was born on 22nd January 1940 in Derbyshire, England and made his TV debut in Z-Cars in 1962. Since that time he has appeared in The Elephant Man, Hellboy, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, I Claudius, The Sweeney, Midnight Express, Watership Down, Lord of the Rings (animated movie), Alien (a role he later reprised in Spaceballs), History of the World: Part I, 1984, The Black Cauldron, The Storyteller, Scandal, Roger Corman’s Frankenstein Unbound, King Ralph, Contact, The Skeleton Key, V for Vendetta,  and Merlin amongst others.

He will be missed.
