O’Toole had a reputation for his love of alcohol and was told by doctors in the mid-70s that he could die after being diagnosed with pancreatitis.

Last year O’Toole announced that he would be giving up acting but it was recently announced he would be starring in Katherine of Alexandria which is due for release in 2014.

Our thoughts are with Peter’s family and friends at this difficult time. He was a true acting legend and will be sorely missed.
