Holm was an instantly recognizable face in the industry, which was regarded as skillful on stage and screen alike. He won a BAFTA and was Oscar-nominated for his role in the 1981 hit Chariots Of Fire, and calmly played Bilbo Baggins in the epic trilogy Lord Of The Rings and in Hobbit films.
One of his most famous appearances was the malfunction of Android Ash in Ridley Scott's alien. Scott said today: “I had such a good and fruitful time with Ian and my only regret was not to have worked with him again. Ian spoke to me quite a bit during production, which I found very helpful. A great talent and a great man - we will miss him. "
Holm was born in Essex, Great Britain, in 1931. He was outstanding on stage and played an important role in the Royal Shakespeare Company in his early career. In 1965 he won the Evening Standard Award for best actor for Henry V. He was also known for his work with Harold Pinter and a masterful King Lear in 1997.

RIP Ian Holm, an ingenious actor who presented parts funny, heartbreaking and terrifying. Thank you for Bilbo, Napoleon (twice), Sweet Herwhile, Big Night, Brazil and of course the legendary Ash. "I can't lie to you about your chances, but ... you have my sympathy."

Time bandits, dancing with a stranger, Brazil. Some of Ian Holm's great screen appearances seemed deceptively small, but in fact, so powerful. Full of suppressed emotions. Goodbye sir.

Although I never met him when I was an unemployed actor with little money, I went to London for an audition and was asked to stay with me the next day for a call back. I had no shelter, so one of the casting directors asked her father, who was gone, if I could stay
