    O no...how sad, a few years more and perhaps a movie more.

    My favourite movies with him was Blade runner of course, and the ending ..for me the most poetic moment in a movie ever.
    He was in this interview describing the love he felt ..from audience and fans, and it just couldn´t get any better than that, so at least he felt that.

    Also loved his performance in The Hitcher.

    And yep, some of those last lines in the end, Rutger scratch the original dialog and replaced it with the poet in Roy or in himself so to speak..check that vid.

    A bit scary, just found out that Rutgers Character "Roy Batty" in the movie dies in the year 2019, just as Rutger now did.

    Not only was he a great actor of the visual arts, but he had one of the most compressing voices in all of stage or screen. Right up there with the likes of...

    Peter O'Toole
    James Earl Jones
    Ian McKellen
    John Huston
    Orson Wells

    He will be missed.

    Soldier of Orange (1977)

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076734/

    Saw this movie in the late 80's early 90's, it has one of the most intense torture scenes I had seen to date.

    do yourself a favor and Watch it in the original Dutch.

    Guys! I'm surprised you even know him.
    I thought he was only world famous in The Netherlands.

    His carreer started with "Floris" (a first project of director Paul Verhoeven): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ovt3Vti2sc

    I was slightly too young in those days but I did watch a few episodes on our b/w television.

    He is very well know here in Sweden it seems, at least when I talk to friends or collegues at the coffe table in workbreaks, everyone knows how amazing his performance was in hitcher in fact, blade runner many also knows of course.

    My first encounter with him on the screen was Blade Runner, and always thought he had a special carisma since then, it is also my favourite movie with him, along with the Hitcher..he was extremely mysteriously
    fantastic in that movie as well...can not forget his dialog in the car with Thomas Howell (he was outstanding too by the way) "and I´m gonna do the same to you"
    probably the creepiest appearance next to Anthony hopkins in Silence of the Lambs.

    I have also seen him in flesh and blood, Ladyhawke, batman, blind fury, the monster movie split second, the osterman weekend
    And some more..

    Just recalled he was playing against Jennifer Jason Leigh in both Flesh and blood and then against her in the Hitcher.

    I was at a scifi- nerd convent here in sweden many years ago, where he was one of the guests, I should have lined up to take a picture or just give thanks to his performance, but Ivé always been a bit awkward and shy about in my views disturbing stars.

    But it feels very strange that he dies the same year that the movie predicted or staged for his role character, when a part of the premise was to know how long time we has as humas, or replicants...to bad he didn´t live forever, but then again..who does

    I remember seeing him in numerous movies, shows, etc.; here in the States. RIP.
    When you know you're a "cup half-full" kind of guy:

    "Sir; they've got us surrounded!"

    "Excellent! Now we can attack in any direction!"

    Many sure do know him.  

    He was "Super Famous" for his Blade Runner Line.

    RIP Rutger - I know he has been in many super films, but for me when growing up I remember him the most by his brilliant Guinness adverts on television.
