Rutger Hauer ist bereits am Freitag im Alter von 75 Jahren gestorben. Zuerst hat sich mir Rutger Hauer als Hitcher der Highway-Killer ins Gedächtnis gebrannt, dann natürlich als Replikant Roy in Blade Runner. But all those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain, I guess. Mach’s gut Rutger, und danke für das Tannhäuser Tor.
Hauer died Friday at his home in the Netherlands of an undisclosed illness, his agent, Steve Kenis, told The Hollywood Reporter. His family did not want the news revealed until his funeral, which was held Wednesday. “He was a wonderful man and terrific actor,” Kenis said.
Hauer made his Hollywood debut opposite Sylvester Stallone in Nighthawks (1981) and went on to appear on the big screen in such films as The Osterman Weekend (1983), Ladyhawke (1985), The Hitcher (1986), Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992), Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002), Batman Begins (2005), Sin City (2005), Hobo With a Shotgun (2011), Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) and The Sisters Brothers (2018).
