The Greatest Story Ever Told. The Exorcist. Flash Gordon. Star Wars. Game of Thrones.
These are only a few of the iconic films that make up the list of projects film actor Max Von Sydow has starred in. Sadly, news has broke that the actor has passed away.
Representatives for the star confirmed to Fox News that the star died on Sunday, March 8, 2020, but did not comment on any official cause of death.
“It is with a broken heart and with infinite sadness that we have the extreme pain of announcing the departure of Max von Sydow,” a statement from his wife, Catherine, reads.
Fans may remember him as Lor San Tekka in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” or as the Three-eyed Raven in “Game of Thrones.” Perhaps one of his most memorable roles, though, was as Father Merrin, the priest who arrives to exorcise the demon from a young girl in the horror classic “The Exorcist.”
Max Von Sydow will be missed…
