Loss of a legend

Beloved British actor Bob Hoskins has passed away yesterday at age 71 from pneumonia, reports the actors agent. Fortunately, he was surrounded by family.

While best known for his work in The Long Good Friday, Brazil, Mona LisaWho Framed Roger Rabbit?, and Mermaids, you may know him best from the infamous Super Mario Bros. film from 1993 – which he described as \”the worst thing I ever did\”.

A few who have worked with Hoskins have already paid their respects respects.

Hugely sad. Can\’t think of many actors who explored masculinity with such tenderness. Bob Hoskins -goodbye lovely man and a huge thankyou!

\”He was one of the nicest and best actors I have ever worked with.\”

I never thought it was possible to become an actor until I saw Pennies From Heaven as a kid. RIP Bob Hoskins, brilliant,inspirational, kind.
