Swedish cinema legend and Hollywood star Max von Sydow passed away at the age of 90. The entire industry and the fans of the late versatile actors are paying heartfelt condolences. The netizens could not come to the terms to this huge loss to the cine world. He impressed the critics and the audience wth his roles in 'Game of Thrones', 'Star Wars', and 'The Exorcist' to name a few.
Max Von Sydow, such an iconic presence in cinema for seven decades, it seemed like he'd always be with us. He changed the face of international film with Bergman, played Christ, fought the devil, pressed the HOT HAIL button & was Oscar nominated for a silent performance. A god,"Director Edgar Wright wrote on Twitter. Here are the messages dedicated to the late actor by his fans across the world.

Tribute To His Cherished Roles
Max von Sydow is rightly going to be remembered for his Bergman work but I would be lying if I didn't say how much I love his turn as Ming the Merciless in 1980's Flash Gordon, and his De Laurentiis day player days in general.

RIP Max von Sydow. How ironic that in The Seventh Seal he is playing chess against death. On my first date with my wife she asked me what my favourite movie was and I said The Seventh Seal, the best chess match ever played. That's when she should have changed her mind.

RIP Max von Sydow
Played the coolest guy, the Alsatian Gentleman in 3 Days Of The Condor, a philosopher assassin. “There is no need to believe in either side, or any side. There is no cause. There's only yourself. The belief is in your own precision.”

Fans Will Miss The Actor
"Well, the fact is, what I do is not a bad occupation. Someone is always willing to pay...
it's quite restful. It's almost peaceful. No need to believe in either side, or any side. There is no cause. There's only yourself." I will miss Max von Sydow, a great actor.
