John Hurt died. He was famous for having chest burst by Alien and as Doctor Who during Dalek Time War

John Hurt, who died on Friday, was a brilliant and versatile actor who made memorable film appearances over five decades.

As the subject of the celebrated ‘chestburster’ scene, Hurt is on the receiving end of one of the most played clips ever. The extra dose of chicken giblets and offal that director Ridley Scott used to surprise the actors gave them all a nasty shock, not least Veronica Cartwright who played Lambert.
