Paul Scofield was truly one of the greats.

“Of the 10 greatest moments in the theatre, eight are Scofield’s,” the actor Richard Burton once said. He was bestowed a CBE in 1956, and it’s rumored he turned down offers of knighthood.

I think the first time I recall seeing him was in high school watching Kenneth Branagh’s Henry V, in which he played the worn-down French king.

He was 86.

I’ll leave you with a clip I found of YouTube of him in the Oscar-winning film A Man For All Seasons. He won the 1967 Oscar for this role.
