It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Rutger Hauer has passed away aged 75 years old on July 19th 2019 at his home in the Netherlands after a short illness. Hauer’s agent, Steve Kenis, confirmed his death, per a report from Variety.

Hauer was well known for his role in Blade Runner but had a host other films on his C.V. including Hobo With A Shotgun, Lady Hawke, The Hitcher, Bling Fury, The Salute of the Jugger, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Omega Doom, Hemogoblin, Sin City, and Batman Begins. On TV he was the face on Guinness, as well as appearing in True Blood, Channel Zero, Mata Hari, The Last Kingdom, Wilfred, Smallville, and The 10th Kingdom.

He was recently filming his role as Ghost of Christmas Future in an upcoming TV mini-series adaption of A Christmas Carol with Guy Pearce as Scrooge. We are unsure if he had finished filming his role.
