RIP Rod Taylor
Vintage Hollywood star Rod Taylor, famous for roles in The Birds, The Time Machine and Giant, has passed away just days before his 85th birthday.
Australian actor Taylor's persona was that of a suave and hunky tough guy, a role he played very well. As well as his most well known films he also appeared in mercenary adventure Dark of The Sun (based on Wilbur Smith's novel) and the James Bond spoof The Liquidator (based on the novels of John Gardner, who would later go on to pen official Bond novels in the 1980s) He lent his vocal talents to Disney's 101 Dalmatians and was last seen as Churchill in Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds.
