We offer you this film once more In Memoriam.

Journalist and friend Andrew Richardson said Postlethwaite passed away peacefully in hospital in Shropshire on Sunday following a lengthy illness.

The actor had continued to work until recent months despite receiving treatment for cancer.

Postlethwaite, who was made an OBE in the 2004 New Year Honours List, was previously described by Hollywood director Steven Spielberg as “the best actor in the world”. They worked together on The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Amistad.

In response to the praise, Postlethwaite joked: “I’m sure what Spielberg actually said was, ‘the thing about Pete is that he thinks he’s the best actor in the world’.”} else {
