Actor Pete Postlethwaite Dead at 64

Posted on 03 January 2011 by Christian

Reports are coming in that The Oscar nominated character actor has passed away after a long battle with Cancer…

Some bad news to start out 2011. The excellent Pete Postlethwaite has died at 64. Apparently the Englishman passed “peacefully, after a long illness.” Postlethwaite is probably best known for his performance in Jim Sheridan’s In The Name Of The Father but CBM/sci fi fans will remember his work in Alien 3 and more recently Clash Of The Titans and Solomon Kane. He also appeared in The Usual Suspects, Inception and The Town as well as many other quality flicks.

Personally I have been a huge fan of the man’s work for many years and count Brassed Off among my favourites. Our thoughts and condolences go out to this great actor’s family and friends. R.I.P
