In Memoriam: Rutger Hauer, Golden Globe Winner, 1944-2019

“…Like tears in the rain…” few actors have likely been as indelibly identified with lines spoken by one of their characters as Rutger Hauer was with those he spoke as Roy Batty, the soulful replicant in Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. That soliloquy contributed to making the film the cult movie it was to become and is even more remarkable given that part of it – including the ‘tears in the rain’ part – was ad-libbed on the spot by the Dutch actor who passed away at 75.
