I only know him from Titanic and Lord of the Rings.

He was married to Marianna Hill. I just saw her in the Eastwood High Plains Drifter and she was in a Star Trek Original episode.

RIP.. To US audiences he's mostly known as "Theoden" from the LOTR trilogy and as the captain of the Titanic in "Titanic". I looked up his acting credits on IMDB yesterday and he had been acting in the UK since the early 70's. His big break into Hollywood was his role in "Titanic".

Very big in British TV. I first remember him in Boys From The Black Stuff as the tragic Yosser Hughes. Way, way back, early eighties.

Lol, yeah I hear that smile I still keep thinking of 90s music as that new stuff that I don't like any more. Still, when your TV heroes & crushes keep stepping off the planet with alarming regularity, you've got to admit a few things to yourself biggrin

I recently listened through all of my Beatles CD's again and it was a bit surreal to realize that their first album was released 61 years ago. About the only other music I listen to that is older comes from musicians like Richard Wagner and Johann S. Bach!

The battle of Pelennor Fields, with the horns blowing as the Rohirrim crest the hill, will forever be the most epic movie scene of all time.

RIP.
