Bob Hoskins


Bob Hoskins most memorable role was in the movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, he is the British actor who was nominated for a academy award for his role in Mona Lisa.  Till today, I can still vividly remember some of the movies he was in and he was brilliant at what he did.

Did you know that Bob did not finish school at all ?  in fact, he left schoolk at the age of 15 and he worked as a porter and a window cleaner as well before he went into an accountancy course but dropped out.  I guess he didn’t know his calling then but he did make out alright afterall.

His acting started on stage before he went into television in 1975 and had been in more than 2 dozen after that.  He received an emmy in 2010 and retired in 2011 when he learned that he had Parkinson.  Bob died in April 2014 and he will be missed I’m sure, for he was a truly good actor.
