British actor and director Richard Attenborough, brother of naturalist David Attenborough, has sadly passed away at the age of 90. He was well-known for films like The Great Escape, Miracle of 34th Street and Jurassic Park, as well as for directing the Academy Award Winning film Gandhi.
Lord Attenborough, was moved into a care home in west London back in 2013, after suffering a stroke five years earlier.
