His agent said Peter was 'one of a kind in the very best sense and a giant in his field' after he passed away in hospital on Saturday (December 14) after a long illness.
Actor Peter O'Toole, who starred in Sir David Lean's 1962 film classic Lawrence of Arabia, has died aged 81, his agent has said.
He announced in July 2012 that he was retiring from both screen and stage, saying "I bid the profession a dry-eyed and profoundly grateful farewell." after receiving an honorary Oscar in 2003.
Rest in peace, Peter.
