As many of you may have heard. Actor John Hurt has recently passed away. He lost the battle he had with lung cancer. John provided the voice of Aragorn for Ralph's version of Lord of the rings.
"I cast John Hurt for Aragorn. At that time he was an English stage actor. When he recorded Aragorn for “Lord of the Rings”, everything you heard in the film was first take. Not because I was rushed, but because it was perfect. We played darts in the pubs many a night, and he beat me in that, too. We all will miss him very much."
