Award winning movie, TV and theater actor Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away at the age of 46. His sudden death caused by suspected drug overdose shocked a lot of his fans worldwide. He may not be the typical leading man kind of actor due to his usual bulky appearance but he has certainly been capable of establishing an impressive cinematic presence each and every time. One of his most memorable performances would be that of the biopic of Truman Capote in 2005. It was in 2012 when he proved to be even a better actor on stage with the revival of the Broadway piece ‘Death of a Salesman’ for which he received another Tony Award nomination. He also recently acted alongside the newest generation of actors today as the head gamemaker for the film adaptation of the ‘Hunger Games: Catching Fire.’
Philip Seymour Hoffman will always be considered as one of the most amazing character actors of his time. He is survived by his partner Mimi O’Donnell with whom he had three children.
