RIP John Hurt

John Hurt was one of my favorite actors, and in my childhood view, the best storyteller ever.

“The Soldier and Death” directed by Jim Henson is probably still the coolest thing I’ve ever seen on television. But I love every episode. I could watch them every day. And a huge part of the appeal is John Hurts performance as The Storyteller. His narration is so engaging and comforting like a warm fire.

“If death needs a new friend, I cannot fight him.”
“But howsoever life smiles on us, the last laugh is reserved for death.”
-The Storyteller
