Misunderstanding there, I thought you were saying he had died, Nonu - but he is retiring after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
He certainly has made some wonderful films and appeared in numerous tv programmes as well.

Oh yes love Bon Hoskins even though some of his films were a touch scary for me. Nice in Mermaids

Great actor. Heard on news last night that due to his diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease, he'll be retiring from acting. sad

Horrible, horrible disease, lots of love to anyone on here who has or knows of anyone with this disease.
It is so hard to see someone struggle with Parkinsons, my mum did her best, she would not eat in front of my children because most of her food would end up down her front. She would not move out of her chair when they were around her so as they did not see her struggle to walk.
It is so sad to hear that Bob Hoskins has Parkinsons, I have enjoyed so many of his films, its a sad day when yet some one else has to face this disease. sad
