William Hurt, Oscar Winner, And General Ross Actor Has Passed Away At The Age Of 71

William Hurt, an Oscar winner for Kiss of the Spider Woman who, in his early acting performances, frequently played a quiet academic but subsequently adopted more assertive parts in science fiction and Marvel movies, died just a week before his 72nd birthday. Will Hurt, William Hurt’s son, announced his father’s death just recently. The elder Hurt was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer that had spread to his bones in May 2018.

“It is with great sadness that the Hurt family mourns the passing of William Hurt, beloved father, and Oscar-winning actor, on March 13, 2022, one week before his 72nd birthday,” his son wrote. “He died peacefully, among family, of natural causes. The family requests privacy at this time.”

Hurt was born in Washington, DC on March 20, 1950. His father worked for the United States Agency for International Development, and the family moved to Lahore, Mogadishu, and Khartoum as a result of his work. His mother married Henry Luce III, the son of publisher Henry Luce after his parents divorced. He continued his education at Tufts University, where he majored in theology. But the acting fever grabbed him, and he enrolled in the theatre section of the Juilliard School, where he devoted 4 years rubbing shoulders with rising stars like Robin Williams and Christopher Reeve.

In the mid-1980s, Hurt received three Best Actor Oscar nods in a row for Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985), Children of a Lesser God (1986), and Broadcast News (1987). For A History of Violence, he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

Hurt was a member of the Marvel Universe as the blustering Thaddeus Ross, a General who was present on the tragic day Bruce Banner became the Hulk, according to casual viewers. The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and Black Widow, as well as the Marvel One-Shot The Consultant and the Disney+ animated series What If…?, both voiced by Mike McGill, included the Ross character.
