I have been a fan of John Hurt since 1976 when I first saw him the Mobil Masterpiece Theatre production of I,Claudius. He played the part of Caligula (as an adult) and was absolutely phenomenal in the role. If you can, check with your library. He was funny, evil, psychotic, bad, bad, bad. You loved to hate him. Also, he was superb in the true story of the jockey who becomes ill with cancer in Champions. Yes, he has a voice that just draws you in. Has anyone ever, or I should say, will they ever forget the devastating role he portrayed in Elephant Man? He makes your heart just break. He is more than talented. He is a superb actor with a haunting, drawing voice. Long may he live.

Hi Helen,

He was nominated for an Oscar for "Midnight Express" in the 70's, also plays a wonderful character in the early 90's film called "Scandal", and is excellent as "The Elephant Man", even though he's quite covered up in makeup.
