We are delighted to welcome John Hurt for a discussion of an acting career that is now into its sixth decade and shows no signs of slowing down. Beginning with A Man For All Seasons in 1966 he has played leading roles in some of the most successful films ever made including Alien, Midnight Express and The Elephant Man and in recent years he has reached younger generations through his roles in Doctor Who and three of the Harry Potter movies. Prestigious directors including Steven Spielberg, Alan Parker, Guillermo Del Toro and Stephen Frears have all made use of his talents. The winner of four BAFTAs and twice Oscar nominated, John Hurt remains one of Britain’s best known and most sought after actors.
