Sad news tonight as it has been announced that Rutger Hauer has died at the age of 75 in the Netherlands on Friday after a short illness, his agent confirmed.
For me, he is most remembered for his role as the NEXUS-6 N6MAA10816 Roy Batty in the movies Blade Runner.
“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe, Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”
RIP the great Rutger Hauer: an intense, deep, genuine and magnetic actor that brought truth, power and beauty to his films. My personal favorites: Flesh + Blood, Eureka, The Hitcher, Blade Runner, Ladyhawke and Blind Fury. pic.twitter.com/1F2Via3mLY
