Rutger Oelsen Hauer (23 January 1944 – 19 July 2019) was a Dutch actor, writer, and environmentalist noted for his ability to infuse roles with both determined action and pensive intelligence. He acted in both Dutch and English-language TV series and films.
His career began in 1969 with the title role in the Dutch television series Floris, and surged with the hugely successful Turkish Delight in 1973. After rising to international stardom with Soldier of Orange in 1977, he moved into American films such as Nighthawks, as an international terrorist, and Blade Runner, as existentially aware android Roy Batty. That acclaimed performance bought leading roles in titles such as The Osterman Weekend, Ladyhawke, Flesh+Blood, The Hitcher, Escape from Sobibor (for which he won a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor), Blind Fury, The Blood of Heroes and Wedlock. In the 1990s he began to move into prominent supporting roles in films including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Sin City, Batman Begins and The Rite, with occasional starring roles such as Hobo with a Shotgun.
