Ted Takes Film Facts, Darkest Hour:
- Veteran actor John Hurt, with 205 acting credits according to his IMDb page, died during the filming. Hurt was supposed to be in the film portraying Neville Chamberlain, but Gary Oldman said in an interview, that because of how sick he was and that he never made it to a reading, Hurt never filmed a scene, as he was being treated for cancer, which later took his life as filming was going on. The film will still be dedicated to Hurt, as it was his final project he was involved with.
