Peter_O'TooleBorn Peter Seamus Lorcan O’Toole on August 2, 1932 in North Leeds, Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

Died December 14, 2013.

After a long battle with illness, Peter O’Toole has passed away.  A hard drinking, hard living British actor, O’Toole was widely considered one of the greatest actors of his generation.  Having given up the alcohol, O’Toole was unrepentant about his hard living, hell raising antics.
