British actor Jack Hedley Dies Of A Heart Attack.
The classic actor Jack Hedley, who participated in legendary films such as Lawrence of Arabia and For Your Eyes Only, has died at the age of 92 after suffering a brief illness, according to Variety.
The Times of London confirmed that the British actor passed away on December 11 and revealed that “following his wishes, a funeral will not be held in his name. His family and friends will miss him very much.”
Jack Hedley was well known in the medium for his powerful performances, they assured from Turner Classic Movies, and thanks to them he managed to get to interpret around one hundred roles over several decades.
He was born in London in 1929 with the name Jack Hawkins, but he wanted to change it since another well-known actor of his time was named after him, Variety recalled, and thus Jack Hedley would be born.
His artistic career would begin in the fifties. His first IMDB-registered role was on the television series The Buccaneers, and later he starred in shows such as White Hunter, Fair Game, and Television Playwright, as well as The Third Man, Somerset Maugham Hour, and No Hiding Place.
Some appearances in the films of the sixties would include titles such as Trouble in the sky and Make Mine Mink. In For Your Eyes Only, he appeared alongside Peter O’Toole, where he played a reporter. Later, in 1981, he became the father of Carole Bouquet, Sir Thimothy Havelock, for the James Bond saga in the hit film For Your Eyes Only.
In the 1980s, Hedley continued to work on television and appeared in One by one, Hard cases, and A Quiet Conspiracy. His last credits date from the year 2000 and appear in the dramatic miniseries St. Paul where he played a high priest.
Rest in peace.
