Sir Ian Holm Obituary

its with great sadness that today we learn of the passing of British actor Sir Ian Holm has passed away at the age of 88.

Sir Ian Holm was an amazingly talented actor and had a career that spaned many decades, and appeared in such movies as Chariots of Fire for which he was nominated for an Oscar, Time Bandits, The Fifth Element, and dozens of other movies.

The award winning actor was a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company from its founding and appeared in many critically acclaimed productions, but he is perhaps best remembered by many for his roles as the murderous android  Ash in Ridley Scott’s original 1979 Alien, and more recently as the loveable Bilbo Baggins from Peter Jacksons Lord of the Rings movies.

The much loved actor passed away from Parkinsons related illness and was 88 years
