Richard Attenborough, a respected director, and actor passed away Sunday at 90 years old. According to his son, Michael Attenborough, he had been in poor health for some time. He had been in a nursing home with his wife for years and has been in a wheelchair following a fall he had six years ago. He was known for beloved films like Jurassic Park, Gandhi, Doctor Doolittle and Brighton Rock, which was his first role in front of the camera back in 1947. His role as a director led him to amazing biographical documentaries on the lives of Churchill, Chaplin, Lewis, Hemingway, and of course Gandhi. His last film “Closing the Ring” came out in 2007, with Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer. Prime Minister David Cameron issued a statement after news broke about Attenborough’s death, calling him “one of the greats of cinema.” Cameron later added on that “His acting in `Brighton Rock’ was brilliant, his directing of `Gandhi’ was stunning.” Yet another legendary actor is gone. We hope that wherever you are, you know that you are loved, and thank you for all the great movies you have given us.
