Sad news as Merlin in Excalibur Nicol Williamson dies aged 75

25 January 2012 6:39 AM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Nicol Williamson who played Merlin in John Boorman's Excalibur, dies of cancer. The British actor known for his memorable role as Merlin in the 1981 film, as well as The Seven-Per-Cent Solution as Sherlock Holmes died in Amsterdam on December 16th of esophageal cancer, reports Variety. Sad news indeed. I remember watching Excalibur over 20 times at least when I was younger. A timeless classic that can be watched today and still be incredibly powerful. Williamson was nominated for 2 BAFTA Film Awards for 1968's The Bofors Gun and Inadmissible Evidence in the same year. He also scored a BAFTA TV Award for his work in 1972's The Gangster Show: The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui. »
