It is with sadness that we write of the passing of Lord Richard Attenborough, who died just days before his 91st birthday. Attenborough suffered a stroke five years ago that left him in a coma for several days and confined him to a wheelchair since.

Attenborough portrayed the role of John Hammond in the first two Jurassic Park films as well as Judge Arthur Conan in 10 Little Indians, and also directed the 1978 horror/thriller Magic, which starred Anthony Hopkins and Burgess Meredith. He also won two Academy Awards for 1982′s Gandhi.

Our deepest condolences go out to his friends and family. He will be sorely missed.
