4. Sir Richard Attenborough, August 24

Sir Richard Attenborough, August 24

There are few British stars that have the stature of Sir Dickie.

His contribution to the British arts scene is immeasurable and surely will be sadly missed โ€“ thereโ€™s probably no one big enough to fill his very great shoes!

He had a career in movies that spanned more than 70 years but he will be most remembered for his incredible and stunning biopic Gandhi, for which he won Best Director Oscar and for his acting roles in Jurassic Park and Miracle on 34th Street.
