RIP Max von Sydow

Recommended Posts

Lead man for many Ingmar Bergman masterpieces, the Seventh Seal most popular. 
 

I preferred Winter Light, that had to be a comedy, right? Just like that JFK movie?

 

Recently played 3 eyed raven in Game of Thrones

I thought the black hole got him.

 

EDIT:  Whoops, wrong ‘Max’!  Maxamilian Schell was the megalomaniac in ‘The Black Hole’.  🙁

Leslie Nielsen was a serious actor for years, and 95% of us only remember him as Frank Drebbin.  😁

Best known to me from the Exorcist. Good actor. RIP Max.

Was thinking this as well...Exorcist came out in 1973, which means he was in his mid-40s when he did the movie.  I thought he looked like a fossil then!

I remember him from the Exorcist for sure but more so from The Greatest Story Ever Told... my Mom loved that movie.

It will happen this way. You may be walking. Maybe the first sunny day of the spring. And a car will slow beside you, and a door will open, and someone you know, maybe even trust, will get out of the car. And he will smile, a becoming smile. But he will leave open the door of the car and offer to give you a lift.

It was a good makeup person. He was playing an 80 year old plus priest in that. Crazy though how well he acted and looked like an old man.

What Dreams May Come.   Feel like his character in Game of Thrones was essentially the same character as the Tracker from What Dreams May Come.

 

Really great actor.  RIP buddy.

From IMDB on Strange Brew-

The role of Brewmeister Smith was written with Max von Sydow in mind. But Rick Moranisand Dave Thomas thought actually enlisting him would be impossible. It turns out that Freddie Fields, then-president of MGM had just produced Victory (1981), which starred von Sydow. So he sent the esteemed actor the script. Instead of hashing it out with Fields, von Sydow ran it by his son, who was a huge SCTV  fan and encouraged his father to take the role.
