RIP Richard Attenborough

British actor and film director Richard Attenborough has died at the age of 90. He died at lunchtime on Sunday August 24th, his son told BBC News. Lord Attenborough was one of Britain's leading actors, before becoming a highly successful director. In a career that spanned six decades, he appeared in films including Brighton Rock, World War Two prisoner of war thriller The Great Escape and later in dinosaur blockbuster Jurassic Park. As a director he was perhaps best known for Gandhi, which won two Oscars. He also directed the modern day Euro-western Grey Owl (1999) starring Pierce Brosnan. Lord Attenborough had been in a nursing home with his wife for a number of years
