Rutger Hauer passed away on the 19th of July, aged 79.
It must be great to know that you have created something which will never be forgotten. I am referring, of course, to his portrayal of Roy Batty in Blade Runner (1982).
The genius behind Blade Runner was Ridley Scott, of course, but Rutger made an unforgettable contribution.
He is also remembered for other movies, including 1986’s The Hitcher.
And for his role in a series of ads for Guinness.
Here is his iconic final scene in Blade Runner, which apparently was improvised to some extent.
