Robert Forster


Born - 13 July 1941, Rochester, New York, USA
Died - 11 October 2019

Offbeat American actor with lived-in face, tousled dark hair, gravel voice and off-centre gaze. He brought his downtown New York tones to films after a stage career in which he had made a speciality of playing Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire. He subsequently appeared mainly in 'loner' roles, often as vulnerable heroes. An Oscar nomination for Jackie Brown in 1997 briefly revived his star career. After a film debut in Reflections in a Golden Eye (1967), starring the screen Kowalski, Marlon Brando, he was seen in The Stalking Moon (1968), Medium Cool (1969), Cover Me Babe (1970), The Don is Dead (1973), Stunts (1977), Avalanche (1978), Alligator (1980), Vigilante (1982), The Delta Force (1986), Hollywood Harry (1986), Satan's Princess (1989), In Between (1991), American Yakuza (1993), Original Gangstas (1996), American Perfekt (1997), Outside Ozona (1998), Psycho (1998), Kiss Toledo Goodbye (1999), Me, Myself and Irene (2000), Mulholland Drive (2001), Like Mike (2002), Grand Theft Parsons (2003), Lucky Number Slevin (2006), Cleaner (2007), Thick As Thieves (2009), The Descendants (2011), Olympus Has Fallen (2013), Survivor (2015), London Has Fallen (2016), Small Crimes (2017), The Big Take (2018), El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019), his last, and many more. He died from brain cancer.
