A versatile character actor appeared in a number of memorable British films over the past few decades, including gangster classic The Long Good Friday.

He also played the pirate Smee in Steven Spielberg's 1991 Peter Pan flick, Hook, and last appeared opposite Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman.

In 2012, Hoskins announced that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and was retiring from acting.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Hoskins' loved ones.
