TRIBUTE: In Remembrance of Sir John Hurt (Updated)

TRIBUTE: In Remembrance of Sir John Hurt (Updated)

On the 25th of January 2017, the world lost one of the most prolific and iconic actors to grace us with their presence on the silver screen. Sir John Hurt publicly announced that he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2015. Dedicated to his craft, he continued to perform while undergoing treatments. By the end of that year, he announced that his cancer had gone into remission. So, it was surprising and sad to hear that he had passed away, three days after his 77th birthday, in his home in Cromer, Norfolk.

If you grew up in the 80s, like me, you may have been introduced to John Hurt in the classic science fiction/horror film Alien. He played Executive Officer Kane in one of the most unforgettable scenes in film history: the alien chest-buster scene. He even replayed this scene in Space Balls, the Mel Brooks parody of science fiction films. After that, I always recognized him in any role, and he always brought a smile to my face – regardless of the type of character he was playing.

Hurt's career spanned over 60 years, with over 129 films and dozens of television appearances. Some of his films are of massive importance, from films that advanced the art of filmmaking (Midnight Express, The Elephant Man, and Perfume) to the films that affected the global social conscience (Watership Down, 1984, and V for Vendetta) to his appearances in films based on “geek” culture (Hellboy, the Harry Potter films, and Indiana Jones) to his contributions to the horror genre (The Ghoul, Alien, and Frankenstein Unbound). One thing that I had always noticed about him is that he always took his roles seriously. Even when comedy was called for, John never failed to give his best performance.

In one of his final performances, he portrayed an incaration of one of the most important British characters in television history – a character that has existed for about the same length of time as his own career. He played the War Doctor, a version of The Doctor from the BBC series Doctor Who, a role which is of ultimate importance to the plot of the main character and his background.

John Hurt has left behind some of the most impressive works in film history and will always be remembered as one of the greatest actors of all time. I hope you rest well, Sir John.

Sir John Hurt
(22 January 1940 – 27 January 2017)

Good-bye, and thank you.
