Richard Attenborough Dies at 90

Posted by monique On August - 25 - 2014 0 Comment

Richard Attenbourough has died at the age of 90. He is an actor and director that spanned six decades, including his most famous role in “Jurassic Park.”

The British actor is probably most well known for his role as John Hammond, the visionary behind the dinosaur park in the film “Jurassic Park.” But Attenborough is also well known for his directorial turn in “Gandhi,” starring Sir Ben Kingsley as the title character.

Kingsley said to the BBC, “Richard Attenborough trusted me with the crucial and central task bringing to life a dream it took him 20 years to bring to fruition. When he gave me the part of Ghandi it was with great grace and joy.” Kingsley talked of the “absolute trust” Attenborough placed in him and how he returned the sentiment. He also said he would “miss him dearly.”

Steven Spielberg, the director “Jurassic Park,” also considered Attenborough a “dear friend.” “He made a gift to the world with his emotional epic ‘Gandhi’ and he was the perfect ringmaster to bring the dinosaurs back to life as John Hammond in ‘Jurassic Park,’” he told the BBC.
