One year has passed since the death of actor, William Hurt. Hurt was a celebrated performer to critiques, but to his co-stars, like Kevin Costner, he was a dear friend.
Costner, who worked with Hunt on the films, The Big Chill and Mr. Brooks, wrote a tribute to Hurt on Instagram, following his death,
“Devastated to hear the news of William Hurt’s passing. I got to know him early in my career when we met working on The Big Chill. William was a truly brilliant actor, and playing alongside him in Mr. Brooks was one of the most transformative experiences of my career. He will be sorely missed.”
At the time of his death, Hurt’s son released the news of his passing, saying, “He died peacefully, among family, of natural causes. The family requests privacy at this time.” Hurt’s death was the result of complications from prostate cancer.
