Oscar-nominated actor Pete Postlethwaite dies aged 64
Postlethwaite was made an OBE in 2004


Journalist and friend Andrew Richardson said Postlethwaite, who was made an OBE in 2004, died peacefully in hospital in Shropshire after a lengthy illness.

In 1994, he was nominated for an Oscar for In The Name of the Father.

He received a best supporting actor nod for his role as Giuseppe Conlon, who was falsely convicted of the IRA's Guildford Pub bombings.

Mr Richardson said the actor, who also starred in films including The Usual Suspects and Brassed Off, had carried on working in recent months despite receiving treatment for cancer.

Postlethwaite was once described by director Steven Spielberg, whom he worked with in films including The Lost World: Jurassic Park, as "the best actor in the world".

I always thought he looked a bit gaunt. Didn't realise he actually had a serious illness. He was a very talented actor. RIP Pete Postlethwaite. frown
