RIP Sir Ian Holm.


Just read that Sir Ian Holm passed away at 88 years of age. A fantastic actor and acted in many films over the years.
RIP Sir Ian Holm.
I first noticed him many years ago, the mid-'70s, in a dark comedy called A Severed Head. I don't recall much about it (other than that Lee Remick was in it), but Holm impressed me with his subtle comic underplaying. He was the android doctor in the original Alien, and of course the elderly Bilbo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings films.
