Unfortunately, Max von Sydow has passed away at his home in France on Sunday.

The 90-year-old was one of the greatest in his generation and having acted since 1949 and spending an incredible 70 years in the business, it is safe to say he died a legend.

Max was twice nominated for an Oscar throughout his illustrious acting career. Once for best performance by an actor in a supporting role when he played The Renter in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close back in 2011, and once for best actor in a leading role when he played Lasse Karlsson in 1987s Pelle erobreren.

The incredibly talented Swedish actor was also nominated for two Golden Globe awards. He was in the Best Actor category for his work in the 1996 drama, Hawaii, and almost earned himself an award for best-supporting actor for his work in The Exorcist.

He was also nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for the most outstanding guest actor in a drama series for his role as The Three-Eyed Raven in HBO’s Game of Thrones.

As well as nominations, Max won awards for his brilliant work over the years. Back in 1990, the Swede won the Australian Film Institute award for best actor in a lead role for his work in ‘Father’.

Aside from awards, Max von Sydow played roles in Ghostbusters, The Seventh Seal, Three Days of the Condor, Shutter Island, Conan The Barbarian, Flash Gordon, Minority Report, The Night Visitor, The Virgin Spring, Dune, Curse of the Ring, Sleepless, Private Confessions, Judge Dredd, Citizen X, and many more.
