Sadly, we have learned that legendary veteran actor, Max Von Sydow has passed away at 90 years old. That the actor passed away at his home in France.
Carl Adolf Von Sydow was born on April 10, 1929, in Lund, Skane, Sweden. Von Sydow made his Hollywood Debut in 1949.
He was best known for his roles in hit movies and television series. The actor played villain Ming, in the cult classic, Flash Gordon.
Von Sydow was nominated for two Oscars in his career. He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in 2011 for his role in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.
My favorite role of his when in the film, Three Days of the Condor. Von Sydow played as Joubert. He starred alongside Robert Redford, Faye Dunaway, and Cliff Robertson. It was directed by Sydney Pollack in 1975. It was a CIA action thriller and a great film. Really before it’s time.
Recently, Von Sydow played the role of the Three-Eyed Raven in the HBO series, Game of Thrones. He also starred in Star Wars The Force Awakens.
We at AEE send our condolences & prayers to the Von Sydow family.
R.I.P. to a great actor.
