The news of Bob Hoskins' passing was a blow to the hearts of fans the world over.
But the Who Framed Roger Rabbit? star was a true actor's actor, so his biggest fanbase was among his fellow craftsmen.
A huge loss today. Bob Hoskins. One of my great inspirations was his performance in Mona Lisa, particularly the last scene. A true great!!

R.I.P. Bob Hoskins. He leaves a wonderful body of work. Felicia's Journey is a creepy little gem that few have seen. Worth discovering.
