It has to be one of my favorite moments meeting and interviewing Sir John Hurt back in 2015.  Listen to what he has to say about the challenges regarding film directors! In asking why women in Hollywood find it hard to break into the industry. Listen to his brilliant answer!

This interview is along side his son.  Raw and real!.

When asked about his approach regarding being a successful actor, in his own words.

Things are the most challenging, when things are the most difficult

The Elephant Man star, whose career spanned over six decades, had battled with both cancer and an intestinal complaint in recent years. You will be sadly missed.
