Last Friday the world said farewell to the accomplished Sir Ian Holm. A classically trained actor, his career spanned almost six decades. Mr. Holm’s talents were generously displayed through the mediums of stage, television and film. He received his knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II in 1998 for his services to drama.

In Memoriam 2018

As 2018 comes to an end, we here at Telly Visions would like to pause to remember some of the performers and public figures we have lost over the past twelve months.

These losses have touched the fields of television, film, literature, music, science and sports. You may not be familiar with all of them, but each was an icon beloved by the British public for the laughter, thrills and enlightenment they provided. They will continue to live on in our memories through the work they left behind.

Remembering Emma Chambers

Many of you have probably already heard the heart-breaking news that Emma Chambers, comedic actress and star of The Vicar of Dibley, passed away earlier this weekend at the age of 53. Reports state that she died unexpectedly of natural causes. She is survived by her husband of 26 years, actor Ian Dunn.

We wanted to take a moment to remember Emma's comedic talents and share some of the "Alice Tinker" moments that made us laugh over the years. 

In Memoriam 2017

As 2017 comes to an end, we here at Telly Visions pause to remember those we have lost in the British entertainment industry over the past twelve months.

These losses have touched the fields of television, film and literature equally. As fans we have mourned the deaths of people who brought thrills, tears and laughter into our lives. We thank them for sharing their talents with the world and they will continue to live on in our memories through the work they left behind.

Remembering Sir John Hurt

Many of you have probably already heard the sad news of the passing of actor John Hurt. He died Friday at the age of 77. He had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June 2015, but announced four months later that the disease was in remission after undergoing treatment. The cause of death has not yet been announced.

Mr. Hurt is survived by his wife, Anwen Rees-Myers, and his two sons, Alexander and Nicholas Hurt, from a previous marriage.

In a career that spanned six decades, Sir John received two Oscar nominations, a Golden Globe for best actor in a supporting role in Midnight Express and three BAFTA awards for various TV and film roles. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts presented Hurt with lifetime achievement award in 2012 for his outstanding contribution to British cinema. He was knighted in 2015 for his services to drama and was reportedly working up to the time of his death.
