    John Hurt - One of The Most Prolific British Actors

    John Vincent Hurt alias John Hurt is an English actor by profession and was born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire on 22nd January 1940. He’s credited with four BAFTA (British Academy Film Awards), a Golden Globe Award alongside two Academy Award nominations. He’s remembered for characterization of the roles in movies like The Elephant Man, An Englishman in New York, Claudius, Nineteen Eighty-Four, The Naked Civil Servant, Scandal etc. to name a few.

    Hurt came to limelight in 1966 holding the hand of Richard Rich (the character he played in the movie A Man for All Seasons) that essentially unlocked film offers for him such as Allen, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Midnight Express alongside Rob Roy, Harry Potter film series, V for Vendetta, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and the Hellboy films. He’s deemed as one of the most prolific and sought after actors of Britain who had a versatile and vivid career spanning almost six decades and was also credited with Shakespearean roles.
