The actor Peter O'Toole, who found stardom in David Lean's masterpiece Lawrence of Arabia, has died aged 81, his agent has said.
 
The acclaimed leading man who overcame stomach cancer in the 1970s passed away on Saturday at the Wellington hospital in London following a long illness, Steve Kenis said.
 
O'Toole announced last year he was stopping acting saying: "I bid the profession a dry-eyed and profoundly grateful farewell."
 
He said his career on stage and screen fulfilled him emotionally and financially, bringing him together "with fine people, good companions with whom I've shared the inevitable lot of all actors: flops and hits."
 
Early in his career O'Toole became emblematic of a new breed of hard-drinking Hollywood hellraiser.
 
"We heralded the '60s," he once said. "Me, [Richard] Burton, Richard Harris; we did in public what everyone else did in private then, and does for show now. We drank in public, we knew about pot."
 
Last month it was reported he had been coaxed out of retirement to act in a film about ancient Rome called Katherine of Alexandria in which he would play Cornelius Gallus, a palace orator.
 
O'Toole is believed to have been born in Connemara in County Galway in Ireland, and lived in London. He shot to stardom in the 1962 film of TE Lawrence's life story and went on to star in Goodbye Mr Chips, The Ruling Class, The Stunt Man and My Favourite Year. He received an honorary Oscar in 2003 after receiving eight nominations and no wins - an unassailed record.
 
He is survived by his two daughters, Pat and Kate O'Toole, from his marriage to actress Siân Phillips, and his son, Lorcan O'Toole, by Karen Brown.
 
 
Quotes from Zulu Dawn Peter O'Tool as Lord Chelmsford
 
"
General Lord Chelmsford: Well, gentlemen, first blood to us and a rousing good report in the newspapers to satisfy the politicians, eh?
 
General Lord Chelmsford: After lunch, Brown, I want you to return to Isandhlwana and instruct Col. Pulleine to join us here immediately.
 
Col. Hamilton-Brown: If you'll excuse me, My Lord.
 
General Lord Chelmsford: No appetite, Colonel?
 
Col. Hamilton-Brown: My men haven't eaten since yesterday and there won't be any supplies until I get them back to Isandhlwana.
 
General Lord Chelmsford: Then they can start off now and you can join them when you've eaten.
 
Col. Hamilton-Brown: Kind of you, My Lord, but I don't think it would be proper for me to sit at your table, they with their bellies stuck to their backbones.
 
[Exits]
 
Lt. Harford: [rising to follow Hamilton-Brown] Excuse me, Sir.
 
General Lord Chelmsford: [to Lt. Harford] Learn nothing from that Irishman, Harford, except how not to behave"

Could have been Orson Wells that said of O'tool in Lawrence of Arabia that if he was any more beautiful the film would have been called 'Florence of Arabia.' Great actor, character and advert for the horrors of AA.
I had the great pleasure of bumping into him in Cape Town International a few years ago. Literally I bumped into him with a luggage trolley, I apologised and said it was an honour to meet such a great man. He bowed with a florish and replied:" your to kind, but the honour is mine to meet such a terrible driver of a luggage conveyance." All with a smile.

Lovely man indeed

Glad to hear he lived up to his legend in the flesh! Has there ever been a more charismatic actor? Certainly nobody has ever put a more charismatic performance on film than his T.E. Lawrence. But he was constantly a stand out whether he was doing drama or comedy.

I do believe he took a special pleasure in sending up figures from the English establishment like Chelmsford. I enjoyed his portrayal of LC but thought it less than charitable...probably because the source of that anecdote was Maori Brown.

Hi Springy
Yes the UK is doing it tough at present , losing Peter O'tool and the Ashes in the same week . Dont forget O'tool
was the last of 3 notables , Mandela , Walker ? ( fast and furious actor ) and O'tool , whenever someone famous around the world departs , especially those in the acting world , I'm thinking their fellow thespians are a little edgy , especially the older brigade !  Shocked 
90th  Merry Christmas

Hi 6pdr
Welcome back?

Glad you enjoyed it. Reminded me somewhat of Spingbok's vignette. 2014 has begun with more of a whimper than a bang here on the forum, what what?
