In 2016 I was fortunate enough to be in the director’s chair when John Hurt played the role of Griffin in a new audio production of The Invisible Man, adapted by Jonathan Barnes for Big Finish Productions.
For his perfomance John was named as one of the finalists in the Best Actor category at the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2018. He didn’t win, but the judges made the following statement:
We couldn’t be more thrilled that John’s skill and dedication to his craft was recognised by the judges. It was a privilege to work with him. One of the kindest and most generous people you could ever hope to meet.
