    A cause of death was not immediately disclosed. "The story is sadly true," publicist Charles McDonald said Friday, adding that a statement would be issued later. Hurt was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2015...

    I've not seen any of the tributes mention his part in Watership Down. To many from my era, John Hurt was Hazel. That voice then became instantly recognisable, in many wonderful parts in TV and film, for decades to come. The author of the book Richard Adams also passed away, just last month.

    RIP Sir John. Run free with the black rabbit
