Brilliant actor. A huge loss. RIP.
Sad news, what a talent and so many memorable roles
Best voice as well.
Fucking great voice
I was just thinking about how much he brings to the role of John Merrick almost solely with that voice
This is the first celebrity death in ages that has upset me a little. When I saw him in the film Jackie a few days ago I thought he might be one to pass away soon : (
I vividly remember seeing the chest burster scene from Alien when I was 15, and thinking how that scene was effective because of his acting. I know it’s a bit insensitive to say right now but that’s got to be one of the best “dying” performances in any film ever. He could wring a lot out of little to go on, as mentioned with the Elephant Man stuff. Great bloke.
insanely talented bloke. RIP.
I booked myself a ticket a few days ago for Jackie. I’ll see it today. I didn’t realise that he was in it. Look forward to seeing his talent on screen. As well as a brilliant actor he always seemed like a really nice bloke.
Incredible actor. He was a friend of my grandads (johns dad was the vicar of my town (then villages) parish or whatever you call it) back in the day. Hope they name a street after him or summat
He was really fucking great in I, Claudius
