Peter O'Toole Dead - 'Lawrence of Arabia' Star Dies at 81

Peter O’Toole has died at the age of 81, his agent tells the BBC.

The actor is most known for his starring role in the film Lawrence of Arabia, which earned him his first Oscar nomination of a career total of eight! He never won an Academy Award for an acting performance, but he received an honorary Oscar in 2003.

Peter recently finished work on the historical film Katherine of Alexandria, which is set to be released in 2014 and he was announced to star alongside Ben Kingsley in the biopic Mary.

“His family are very appreciative and completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of real love and affection being expressed towards him, and to us, during this unhappy time,” his daughter Kate said in a statement. “Thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts. In due course there will be a memorial filled with song and good cheer, as he would have wished.”

We send out our condolences to Peter‘s friends and family during this difficult time.
