Legendary Dutch actor Rutger Hauer has passed away – We’ll miss him dearly

Actor and icon Rutger Hauer died at the age of 75 after a short period illness, as is told by his family. He died last Friday in Beetsterzwaag in Friesland, where he led a reclusive life. The funeral took place in a closed circle.

Rutger Hauer was known in the Netherlands for iconic roles in movies such as Turks Fruit and Soldaat van Oranje  (Soldier of Orange). Two movies we can highly recommend to anyone:
