RIP Sir Michael Gambon

Sir Michael Gambon

Art & Hue extends condolences to the family of Sir Michael Gambon following the news of his passing at the age of 82.

Born in Dublin, Sir Michael Gambon was one of cinemas treasures, consistently delivering memorable performances whatever the billing.

From barn-storming performances such as that of Albert in Peter Greenaway’s “The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, & Her Lover” to heart-wrenching television parts such as “The Singing Detective”, Gambon’s humour, pathos, and power imbued his work with an enduring strength that haunts the viewer long after the end credits.

One of Gambon’s earliest film appearances was in the 1974 film “The Beast Must Die” with Peter Cushing, which opened in London cinemas on the 19th of May 1974. The cult werewolf horror film was produced by Amicus Productions and also stars Calvin Lockhart & Charles Gray.

The actor is beloved by younger viewers as Dumbledore in the later Harry Potter films, filling the role after Richard Harris.
