Renowned British actor Pete Postlethwaite passed away on Monday at the age of 64 from a long-running fight against lung cancer. While mostly known for his roles in scripted television and features (including recent hits such as Inception and The Town), one of Postlethwaite’s most recent film appearances was in the ‘drama-doc’ The Age of Stupid, in which he portrayed one of the last surviving citizens of a climate change-ravaged Earth.
