…has died. O’Toole, a British actor of stage and screen, was a wildly handsome and just plain wild man who earned eight Academy Award nominations, but never won the award. He won hearts instead. He is best known for his role in “Lawrence of Arabia.”
Of his career, he said it had brought him “together with fine people, good companions with whom I've shared the inevitable lot of all actors: flops and hits." Just like the rest of humanity – enjoying success and disappointments.
He lived with passion, saying, "If you can't do something willingly and joyfully, then don't do it".
Perfect advice for anyone.
