Sir John Hurt has died. Quite possibly one of the greatest actors that ever graced the stage, television, or screen. He never won an Oscar (nominated twice), which was a crime! 

Most recently, he was known as Ollivander the wand maker from the Harry Potter films, and as the "War Doctor" in a Doctor Who special.

He didn't mind making fun of himself, either, parodying his character from Alien in Spaceballs:

He will be missed.

2017 damage so far: Miguel Ferrer (from Crossing Jordan, one of my favorite shows), Mary Tyler Moore, Barbara Hale (Perry Mason), Mike Connors (Mannix), and now John Hurt.

ETA- forgot that he played one of my ancestors, Richard Rich, in A Man for All Seasons. So I've had two of my favorite actors play my great-to-the-nth-degree-grandfather. The other was Bryan Dick in last year's Wolf Hall.
