I have only just heard that Rutger Hauer has died, aged 75. That is a tragic loss to acting, and cinema.
I could write about all the film roles I have enjoyed seeing him in, but I have to pick my favourite, from my current top ten film of all time.
He embodied the essence of ‘Blade Runner’ (1987), as the replicant, Roy Batty. And he gave us one of the most iconic death scenes in the history of acting.
Rest in peace, Mr Hauer. You will be missed.
