British actor and director Richard Attenborough has passed away at the age of 90, his son Michael confirmed to the BBC Sunday. A staple of the British film industry and brother of naturalist/broadcaster David Attenborough, his career spanned six decades, both as an actor — appearing in over 70 films including Brighton Rock, The Great Escape, and Jurassic Park — and as a director, most notably of 1982's Gandhi, for which he won two Oscars. British Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted his respects on Sunday night, writing: "His acting in 'Brighton Rock' was brilliant, his directing of 'Gandhi' was stunning - Richard Attenborough was one of the greats of cinema."
