Pete Postlethwaite died of cancer on Sunday 2 January in a hospital in Shropshire, UK.
I have no clue why the news of Postlethwaite’s death saddens me so much but it does. Many actors or celebrities die regularly and I couldn’t care less.
I am still watching the Sharpe series and Postlethwaite has a particularly nasty role in it but still, there is something about this guy. An odd-looking fellow, a gear actor and now sadly passed at age 64.
Apparently Spielberg once called him the best actor of the world. I might not go as far as that but he was very special.
Hope he’s fine wherever he is now.
