A legendary British actor, John Hurt, died of Cancer on January 25th, at the age of 77. He was an actor who had starred in many movies such as Harry Potter, Hellboy, V for Vendetta, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skull and Alien. Despite appearing in many famous movies, many remember him as the actor who played Mr. Ollivander in Harry Potter. Ron Perlman, who had a deep friendship with him stated, “He was one of the purest guys I have ever met. No matter what age he was, he still had a 9-year-old's naivety, curiosity, enthusiasm. He was so boyish in so many ways. And because of that, you wanted to take care of him, protect him from the pure evil of the world. Now, I am not saying he didn't have bouts with personal demons. However, generally speaking, he was just this wonderfully innocent, naive spirit, who was born to act.“ (From Hollywood Reporter)
