According to reports, the well-known stage and film actor, who starred in over 100 films and TV shows, passed away “peacefully” and “surrounded by family.”

Prior to Rosemary’s death in 2002, he was called a “beloved father” and they had been wed for 51 years.

He acted in movies such as White Mischief and Lethal Weapon 2, released in 1989.

The family statement said: “With his distinctive voice and commanding presence, Ackland brought a unique intensity and gravitas to his role.

“He will be remembered as one of Britain’s most talented and beloved actors.”

Raised in Kilburn, north London, Ackland was born in the Ladbroke Grove neighborhood of London in 1928.

He gained experience by working for several regional theater companies before joining London’s Old Vic.

Moreover, Ackland portrayed author CS Lewis in the Shadowlands television film from 1985.

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, he starred in numerous motion pictures, such as Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey and The Mighty Ducks.

He claimed that his workaholism led to him appearing in some “awful films” in a 2001 interview with the BBC.

In 2000, he received a CBE for his acting services.
