Rutger Hauer: Blade Runner actor dies aged 75
Actor Rutger Hauer, who starred in 1982's Blade Runner, has died at the age of 75. Hauer played the murderous replicant Roy Batty in Blade Runner, which was directed by Ridley Scott and also starred Harrison Ford. Hauer's character gives a famous speech during a face-off with Ford at the end of Blade Runner, dialogue which he helped write himself. Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro said Hauer had brought "Truth, power and beauty to his films". Charles de Lauzirika, a Blu-ray producer and filmmaker, tweeted: "Deeply saddened by the passing of the great Rutger Hauer. I have many fond memories of him, both on screen and in person."
