John Hurt receives special award

I have had the great pleasure over the years, to sit on occasions in Soho with the legendary actor John Hurt. Chatting over films and the word at large. How great it was to see that last night he received a standing ovation before giving an emotional speech, as he accepted the Alexander Walker Special Award by Director Stephen Frears, at the 39th London Evening Standard British Film Awards.

He recalled how many years ago he met Noel Coward who signed a book for him and added the words: “Press on”. “I’ve taken that advice to heart ever since”, he said. “I have done what I can”.

I can assure you all from what I know of John, he will continue to press on.
