    Richard Attenborough dies at age 90



    Oscar-winning British film director Richard Attenborough has died at the age of 90, his son has said.

    Lord Attenborough was one of Britain's leading actors, before becoming a highly successful director.
    In a career that spanned six decades, he appeared in films including Brighton Rock, World War Two prisoner of war thriller The Great Escape and later in dinosaur blockbuster Jurassic Park.

    As a director he was perhaps best known for Gandhi, which won him two Oscars.

    Lord Attenborough had been in a nursing home with his wife for a number of years, BBC arts editor Will Gompertz said.
    He had also been in a wheelchair since falling down stairs six years ago, our correspondent added.
    His son told the BBC that Lord Attenborough died at lunchtimeon Sunday.
    His family is expected to make a full statement on Monday.

    Paying tribute, Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted: "His acting in "Brighton Rock" was brilliant, his directing of "Gandhi" was stunning - Richard Attenborough was one of the greats of cinema."

    Actress Mia Farrow tweeted: "Richard Attenborough was the kindest man I have ever had the privilege of working with. A Prince. RIP 'Pa' - and thank you."

    Chris Hewitt from Empire Magazine told BBC News Lord Attenborough had a "huge impact" on cinema, describing him as a "universally beloved" figure.

    Along with his naturalist brother David, Lord Attenborough was one of Britain's best-known screen celebrities.
    Born in Cambridge in 1923, he started acting at the age of just 12, making his professional stage debut aged 18.

    He married his wife Sheila in 1945. They had three children.

    He was appointed a CBE in 1967 and knighted nine years later in 1976, before being made a life peer in 1993.
    so sad

    Read this on my phone. I actually shouted out no in despair then I realised it was Richard and not David. Still sad news but I would probably be a bit distraught and genuinely upset if it was Sir David.

    Sad news... Think he'll be most remembered for his Jurassic Park roll by the younger folk.

    I don't really keep up with celebrities and actors, but I enjoyed his performance in Jurassic Park (loved that movie as a kid).

    He had a long and good life though, and he seemed like a nice person. That's what matters in the end. Rest in peace.

    Jurassic Park is one my favorite and most nostalgic movies, due very much to his character and performance. So this is sad to see.
