RIP Pete Postlethwaite

Pete Postlethwaite has died at the age of 64. Andrew Richardson, a journalist and close friend, stated that the actor passed away at a hospital near his home in Shropshire following a long battle with cancer.

Flicks News are very saddened to hear of the early loss of an exceptionally talented actor who had always given amazing standout performances throughout his entire body of work. Postlethwaite also had a strong connection with Ireland and featured in a number of Irish films and will be especially remembered for his portrayal of Giuseppe Conlon which gained him an Oscar nomination for 'In The Name Of The Father'.
