    RIP Mr Hurt. A brilliant actor. We’re losing too many of the finest lately. Why not some talentless folk from these pathetic reality shows instead?

    RIP John, I loved him in that series he did back in the 80′s. The Storyteller I believe it was called.

    When did we get to this place where, and it’s a good thing, where we say, “77?? That’s too young to go?” I adored his acting. Subtle. And I, too just watched him brilliantly in some scary horror thing where he was hounded by a ghost. The most frightful thing I ever stopped watching. Now, I’m going to brave it and watch it all the way through. I forget its name right now.

    He gave the same quality performance in all his films.
