We lost a giant of film this week­end. Bernard Hill, the man behind icon­ic roles in LOTR and Titan­ic, passed away at 79.

Hill was­n’t new to the scene. He start­ed slay­ing roles on British TV in the 70s before land­ing his break­out as the trou­bled Yoss­er Hugh­es in “Boys From The Blackstuff.”

But it was Hol­ly­wood that turned him into a leg­end. He cap­tained the doomed Titan­ic for James Cameron and led Rohan’s charge as King Theo­den in The Lord of the Rings.

Hill’s resume is epic — Clint East­wood movies, peri­od pieces, even an ani­mat­ed flick! His final appear­ance will be in the new sea­son of Mar­tin Free­man’s detec­tive show, “The Responder.”

Rest in peace, Bernard. You’ll be sore­ly missed.
