Peter O'Toole, star of Lawrence of Arabia, dies aged 81
Actor who shot to fame in David Lean's 1962 masterpiece and received eight Oscar nominations has died in hospital in London
The actor Peter O'Toole, who found stardom in David Lean's masterpiece Lawrence of Arabia, has died aged 81, his agent has said.
The acclaimed leading man who overcame stomach cancer in the 1970s passed away on Saturday at the Wellington hospital in London following a long illness, Steve Kenis said.
O'Toole announced last year he was stopping acting saying: "I bid the profession a dry-eyed and profoundly grateful farewell."
Anyone that has seen Prometheus knows that the movie Lawrence of Arabia was David's favorite and god knows how many times he watched it while the crew of Prometheus was in hypersleep. David was so impressed with Peter's character that he modeled his very look and personality to it. When Ridley Scott was prepping David Fastbender for the role as David, Lawrence of Arabia was suggested for some inspiration. If you have never seen this classic do yourself a favor and give it a viewing. We here at Scified wish Peter's family well and give thanks for his wonderful performances, he truely was a lengendary actor. Rest in Peace Peter O'Toole.
