Peter O’Toole has passed away at the age of 81 on Saturday, December 14, at the Wellington hospital in London. He is known for playing T. E. Lawrence in the classic, Lawrence of Arabia. Ridley Scott’s Prometheus had a lot of influences from the movie, including Michael Fassbender’s android who likes to model himself after T.E. Lawrence.

O’Toole has had a long illness and previously recovered from a severe stomach sickness in the 1970s.

He retired from acting last year and had this to say:

“I bid the profession a dry-eyed and profoundly grateful farewell.”

His daughter, Kate O’Toole, told Deadline:

“His family are very appreciative and completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of real love and affection being expressed towards him, and to us, during this unhappy time.”

RIP Peter O’Toole and our prayers are with you and your family.
