I usually don't quote on deaths all that much but I think I should change that from now on since any actor or artist has something special to remember by.

I will remember him for helping create one of the most iconic scenes in Alien.

But I also hold him dear for other movies like V For Vendetta and of course the Harry Potter movies where he gave Harry his wand.

RIP Mr Hurt... Hopefully I'll get around to your other movies in the future.

Really sad that John Hurt is now gone.

I mean they can still make Hellboy 3 without him but it would have been cool to have once last flashback of him as Broom.

Still they could dedicate this movie in his memory and honour.

RIP John Hurt!

You Are Already Missed.

The man was in a thousand and one things and spun gold in every single one of them. That he was still putting out great work despite his age and illness makes it all the more tragic. I'll miss him and that glorious fairytale voice of his

I remember being Introduced to John Hurt in Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone. His voice made the Exposition stuffed Dialogue from Mr Olivander deeply captivating and Mysterious.... and made me a fan of his work.

He was also Fantastic as Hazel in 'Watership Down', giving both a commanding strength and a sincere warmth to the part that no other actor could replicant for me..... and Despite my Many, Many Issues with The Ralph Bakshi version of 'The Lord of The Rings', John Hurt was excellent as Aragorn (in spite of the Character's Lacklustre design in the film).

My favourite Performance from him is easily John Merrick from 'The Elephant Man', a role that brings tears to my eyes.
John Hurt DESERVED an Academy Award for that alone and I personally feel he was viciously robbed of that.

Farewell Mr Hurt, You were more a Human Being.... You were a Storyteller and a Unique Force that gave power and Presence to Every character you Breathed Life into.

....I want to cry. He was SO good!!! Whether it be Professor Broom, The Horned King, War Doctor, and Ollivander (though, I didn't even know that was him until yesterday! I've been out of touch with Harry Potter)!! I also really liked his narration for The Tigger Movie.

There's still plenty more from him I have to see. But I can't do it now. I'll probably tear up. RIP

I knew this guy for the longest time as trusty, friendly old Ollivander. Scrolling through The Black Cauldron credits recently, I had no idea he was also The Horned King. That's range. RIP, Mr. Hurt.

I was like devastated when I heard he died. I will always remember him as Hazel, The Horned King, and especially Joseph Merrick in The Elephant Man. RIP and even though you didn't do a second movie with the Ocean voice cast, I'm glad that he was in at least 1 and was with Matt Hill (AKA the voice of Ed, Soarin, and Todd in the Polly Pocket franchise).

R.I.P. John Hurt

He was a great veteran actor who was really good at roles like Professor Trevor Bruttenholm, the Horned King, Mr. Ollivander, and the War Doctor.

I'm just saddened that we're living in a time where we're losing people at such an alarming rate.

I would personally love to see him do a voice as the bad guy in a Barbie movie. Since they have used Tim Curry, Martin Short, and Kelsey Grammer as bad guys in some of the Barbie movies.

I haven't seen enough of his work but he was just perfect as Professor Broom in Hellboy.

I haven't seen The Black Cauldron but from what I have heard of his Horned King, it does sound very haunting.

John Hirt is my favorite actor, and my inspiration. While John Merrick & Quentin Crisp & Doyle (Lou) are my favorite screen roles of his, I think his portrayal of Snitter is the greatest voice over performance ever. It made me cry, and was so- real. Long live the legendary John Hurt!

@SmartyBoyboy In the behind the scenes stuff of The Day of the Doctor he said: "I've never done anything like this." and then you watch the episode and it looks as if he has been doing this for years.
