Sir John Hurt was Oscar-nominated twice for 1978’s \”Midnight Express\” and 1980’s \”The Elephant Man\” but of course most of us geeks would remember him best for his role as Kane in \”Alien\” and also his role as the Doctor in \”Doctor Who\” series and as Mr. Ollivander in \”Harry Potter\” franchise.
