RIP John Heard

Such sad news that actor John Heard has passed away at the age of 72. I have actually just watched Big this morning and was thinking that Heard was in so many films in the late 80s and early 90s that I totally love.

He is probably most well known for being the Dad in Home Alone, my other favourites include Beaches, Big and The Guardian.

Rest in Peace John.
