The world has truly lost one of its great actors with the passing of Max Von Sydow.
The Actors family announced “with a broken heart and infinite sadness” that the actor died on Sunday.
Many of you will be familiar with his performances in Flash Gordon, The Exorcist, Seventh Seal, Escape to Victory, Conan The Barbarian, Minority Report and Games Of Thrones. And I am only scratching the surface especially since he notoriously appeared in more than 100 films and TV series.
In his time he was nominated for numerous awards and even won the Cannes Film Festival award. Unlike many actors he kept acting right into his twilight years with his last major appearance being only 2 years ago.
The actor would be noted saying, “I’m not in retirement. I just don’t want to work so much, and I don’t get that many offers any more.”
There are few actors of his caliber out there and it will be a long time before we see one that could match him.
