Actor Paul Schofield dies

Oscar-winning actor Paul Scofield has died, his agent said today.

 

He died peacefully yesterday in a hospital near his Sussex home, Rosalind Chatto said. He was 86.

 

He had been diagnosed with leukaemia, Ms Chatto added.

 

Scofield was considered one of the greatest actors of his generation, winning an Oscar in 1966 for his portrayal of the Tudor statesman Sir Thomas More in the film of Robert Bolt’s 'A Man For All Seasons'.

 

He made his name on the London stage, playing many of the greatest roles in theatre and winning several Baftas.
