Death finally claimed you ...

Max von Sydow
[ Carl Adolf von Sydow ]
(10 April 1929 – 8 March 2020)

Swedish actor who appeared in European and American films. Von Sydow featured in more than 100 films and TV series.[3] His most memorable film roles include Knight Antonius Block in Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal (1957), the earliest of 11 films he made with Bergman, which includes iconic scenes in which his character plays chess with Death.

He also played Jesus Christ in George Stevens' The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965) and also appeared in William Friedkin's The Exorcist, David Lynch's Dune (1984), Woody Allen's Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), Penny Marshall's Awakenings (1990), Steven Spielberg's Minority Report (2002), Julian Schnabel's The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007), and Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island (2010). He later appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and in HBO's Game of Thrones as Three-eyed Raven, for which he received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination.

Throughout his long career he received two Academy Award nominations for his performances in Pelle the Conqueror (1987) and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2011).

Von Sydow received the Royal Foundation of Sweden's Cultural Award in 1954, was made a Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres in 2005, and was named a Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur on 17 October 2012. Von Sydow became a French citizen after his second marriage.

Yeah, who could have predicted a 90-year-old would die? (NT)Shocking, I knowMonday, March 09, 05:23:39pm
IDK, I think Jim Caviezel did a much better job. At least Jim probably looked more ethnically correct than a lily-white Swede. Not to take away from Sydow's performance, but his was by no means definitive (NT)Just my opinion.Monday, March 09, 05:26:04pm
