Lawrence of Arabia” in 1962 was the role that made Irish born actor a worldwide star.

More big roles followed but serious illnesses in the 1970s, threatened to destroy O’Toole’s career.

He recovered and made a comeback in the 1980s with ”The Stuntman” and “My Favourite Year”.

While he never won an Oscar despite many nominations, O’Toole was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Academy Awards ten years ago.

“Always a bridesmaid never a bride, my foot.  I have my very own Oscar now to be me with ’til death us do part”

Peter O’Toole was 81.

His agent says he died in hospital following a long illness.
