A very sad farewell to Philip Seymour Hoffman, dead too soon at 46

imagesI am terribly shocked and immensely saddened to hear of the death of that great actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman. A man of enormous gifts and, apparently, some frailty, he was possessed of incandescent talent and exercised his genius on stage and on film. I had the pleasure and privilege to interview him twice, for Jack Goes Boating and The Ides of March. On both occasions he was the perfect interviewee, intelligent, thoughtful and a good and courteous listener. It goes without saying that he will be missed. I will be remembering him on my Movie Monday show on BBC Radio Leeds tomorrow with Andrew Edwards.
