[[quoteright:280:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/john-hurt.jpg]] '''John Vincent Hurt''', CBE (born 1940) is an English actor. Hurt initially came to prominence for his role as Richard Rich in the 1966 film ''AManForAllSeasons'', and has since retained a career as a lead and supporting actor of many popular motion pictures. His filmography includes but is not limited to: ''WesternAnimation/WatershipDown'', ''Film/MidnightExpress'', ''Film/{{Alien}}'', ''Film/TheElephantMan'' (in the title role, no less), [[TheCaligula Caligula]] in ''Series/IClaudius'', ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', ''Film/RobRoy'', ''Film/{{Contact}}'', Mr. Ollivander in ''[[Film/HarryPotter Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone]]'' and both parts of ''[[Film/HarryPotter Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows]]'', ''Film/VForVendetta'', ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' and [[TheObiWan Professor Bruttenholm]] in the ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' film series. He also voiced Aragorn in Creator/RalphBakshi's animated version of ''WesternAnimation/TheLordOfTheRings''. Hurt is one of England's best-known, most prolific and sought-after actors, and has had a versatile film career spanning five decades. He is also known for his many Shakespearean roles. Hurt has received multiple awards and honours throughout his career including three BAFTA Awards and a Golden Globe, as well as two AcademyAward nominations. His character's demise in ''{{Film/Alien}}'' is generally regarded as one of the most memorable scenes in cinematic history. Starred in a voice-part in the TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} CG-animated movie ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultramarines}}'', and he's also appeared on ''Series/DoctorWho'' as [[spoiler:a mysterious incarnation of the Doctor disowned by the other eleven.]] A rather amusing story was told by Paul Higgins, of ''Series/TheThickOfIt'' ([=Jamie MacDonald=]) fame. On the opening night of a play Higgins was in, ''Black Watch'', about soldiers fighting in Iraq, Hurt was sitting in the front row. One character had the line: "I don't care who plays me in the movies, so long as it's not that cunt in the Elephant Man." The next day, the production got a card: "Congratulations on a magnificent performance of a very important play - from the cunt in Film/TheElephantMan and his wife." A ChronicallyKilledActor, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHk-ooDV2HE a YouTube compilation of his death scenes]] is even longer than it is for SeanBean. That's saying something. ----
