Death of Bernard Hill, the worthy captain of Titanic

He was a great supporting role who brought luck to his directors. The two most famous films in which he starred, Titanic and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, won some eleven Oscars, a record. British actor Bernard Hill has died at the age of 79, the BBC announced.

Two compositions marked his career. First that of Captain Edward Smith in Titanic by James Cameron where he played with rare dignity this naval commander who remained until the end at the controls of the liner hit by an iceberg in 1912. Then he received a shower of awards in 2003 and 2004 (Phoenix Film Critics Awards, National Board of Review, Critics Choice, Award, Screen Actors Guild Awards...) for having magnificently portrayed King Théoden in two parts of The Lord of the Rings inspired by the work of Tolkien and directed by Peter Jackson.
