On 25 October 2002, British actor Richard Harris passed away peacefully at University College Hospital in London.

The 72 year old, acclaimed Irish actor had been undergoing chemotherapy for Hodgkin’s disease, after falling ill two months before.

Harris collaborated with Doris Day in her 1967 movie spy caper Caprice. Although the movie failed to kick up a storm at the box office it is considered a 1960s cult classic. Harris will undoubtedly be best remembered for his roles in A Man Called Horse, This Sporting Life and more recently playing Dumbledore in Harry Potter.
