John Hurt

John Hurt was born on January 22, 1940, in Shirebrook, Derbyshire, England. The third and youngest child of an actress and a clergyman, John was interested in acting from a young age. However, his parents discouraged this ambition, and he attended art school. In 1962, he made his stage debut as a member of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He has since been in numerous television, film, and stage productions, including animated projects and narration for documentaries.
