Dennis Hopper

It’s sad news that probably one of the world’s most gifted actors Dennis Hopper has died.  He’d been suffering from prostate cancer, but at least he lived long enough to be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in March.

All fans of Dennis Hopper have a favourite Hopper movie moment.  His poignant Shakespearean death in the classic True Grit is an early stand out Hopper moment, and his roles in Blue Velvet and Apocalypse Now are legendary, but my favourite is the more nuanced ‘Sicilian’ scene Hopper played opposite Christopher Walken in the underrated True Romance.
