Oscar-winning actor and director Richard Attenborough died today in a London nursing home at the age of 90, his son tells the BBC. Attenborough amassed 74 acting credits over 60 years, starring in acclaimed films like Brighton Rock, The Great Escape, and Miracle on 34th Street, and later the Steven Spielberg blockbuster Jurassic Park, the Daily Mail reports. He also took home the Best Director Oscar for Gandhi, which won eight Academy Awards including Best Film. Confined to a wheelchair for years, Attenborough's health declined in 2013 after a stroke put him in a temporary coma, the Guardian reports. Born in England, Attenborough began acting at age 12, debuted professionally at 18, and was knighted in 1976.
