A dramatic loss for the acting world: Rest In Peace Philip Seymour Hoffman

On Sunday February 2nd, 2014, while many were getting ready for the biggest sports event of the year, the acting community and the people who adore fine actors, were mourning the sudden, traumatic and sad loss of the great Philip Seymour Hoffman. Just like that, he was gone from this life and the promise of seeing his surreal acting prowess in any future film, went with him.

He was beloved by all of the actors that worked with him. He was often described as ‘a nice guy’, ‘approachable’, ‘easy to work with’ and a ‘true thespian’ in the art of acting. He debuted in the indie production Triple Bogey on a Par Five Hole in (1991) and was an actor on the rise ever since. In 2005, he won an Oscar as the lead in the amazing rendition of ‘Capote’.  In the past 46 years, he has acted in over 63 films, series and theatrical productions.  His acting range went from dark, dire and evil to loving, kind and genuine. Whenever you would see him in anything, the audience was always left with the belief that he was truly that character. Something about the way he spoke, gestured and delivered his lines, meant the truth for his character.

Sadly, Philip Seymour Hoffman is no longer with us. Luckily his art will forever live on in the many memorable roles he portrayed. Rest in Peace Mr. Philip Seymour Hoffman, you will be missed.
