Tributes have flooded in for Peter O'Toole.
His agent, Steve Kenis, said: "He was one of a kind in the very best sense and a giant in his field."
adding: "His last act of defiance was living to see 81, but the work will live on forever. RIP Peter O'Toole."
Many actors shared similar sentiments about what fun Peter - who played iconic leading men in 'Lawrence of Arabia', 'Becket' and 'Goodbye Mr. Chips' and more recently appeared in 'Ratatouille' and 'Stardust' - had been when they had worked with him.
'How I Met Your Mother' star Neil Patrick Harris wrote: "So sad to hear about Peter O'Toole passing away. Lucky to have worked with him for a month in Prague. Wonderful man, remarkable talent."
Simon Pegg also weighed in, writing: "Here's to Peter O'Toole, a true great."
Peter had officially retired last year, but filmed one last role, as an ancient Roman orator, for the film 'Katherine of Alexandria', which is set for release next year.
