Ian Holm, 1931-2020
« on: June 19, 2020, 08:17:34 PM »
Just wanted to take a moment to commemorate the great Ian Holm who passed away today. He played J.M. Barrie in Mr. Birkin's fantastic mini-series The Lost Boys and can be recognized in other great roles, including as Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings and as Ash in Alien, among many other notable gems. RIP Sir Ian!

Ian changed my life in so many ways ...  He was the most generous of men, and my debt to him is immeasurable, not only in his portrayal of JMB (to those who had known Barrie, Ian was Barrie) but also his interpretations of Anno's poems, never to be surpassed.  Bless you, Ian. I have never known such pleasure working with any other actor, before or since.
