RIP Ian Holm, one of our most versatile and hard-working actors ever. A few of his roles that come to my mind right away:

  • Chariots of Fire
  • The Sweet Hereafter
  • Alien
  • Time Bandits (as Napoleon)
  • The Emperor’s New Clothes (as Napoleon, again!)
  • Big Night (what a great movie!)
  • The Fifth Element
  • The Lord of the Rings

As with many British actors, the stage was his “real” career, movies a lucrative side gig.
