R.I.P. John Hurt

By January 28, 2017Nat-news, News

I don’t usually refer to this kind of sad events in the blog (in the end this is a fan page), but I think this deserves it, for very special reasons…

British legendary actor John Hurt, whose death was announced yesterday, appeared in more than 200 films and TV series during his distinguished career. Alien, 10 Rillington Place, Midnight Express, Heaven´s Gate, The Elephant Man, 1984, Rob Roy, Contact, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone… these are just some of his most remembered films. He worked with Natalie in two of them: V for Vendetta and his latest film released, Jackie.

He was an incredible actor, with an extraordinary capacity to take over the characters he played. A legend… there is no doubt about it.

Variety presents a great tribute to this artist, and Pablo Larrain, who directed him in Jackie, has done a statement to Entertainment Weekly about it:

John was invincible. Unflinching. Eternal.

Edit: Natalie also paid tribute to the ‘Jackie’ co-star…

I’m so extremely sad to hear of John’s passing,” Portman said. “I was lucky enough to make two films with him — both of which were taken to the next level because of his performances. He was the most talented actor, and also a deeply good and funny and poetic and smart and warm human being. I send my love to his family at this terrible time, and join his fans in watching his films that we are lucky enough to have forever

Rest In Peace. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends in these sad moments…

    Word:legere in latin meaning:Read :Etymology of Legend:legend (n.) Look up legend at Dictionary.com
    early 14c., “narrative dealing with a happening or an event,” from Old French legende (12c., Modern French légende) and directly from Medieval Latin legenda “legend, story,” especially lives of saints, which were formerly read at matins and in refectories of religious houses, literally “(things) to be read,” on certain days in church, etc., from Latin legendus, neuter plural gerundive of legere “to read; to gather, pluck, select” (see lecture (n.)).

    Extended sense of “nonhistorical or mythical story,” with or without saints, wonders, and miracles is first recorded late 14c. Meaning “writing or inscription” (especially on a coin or medal) is from 1610s; on a map, illustration, etc., from 1903. To be a legend in (one’s) own time is from 1958.
