John Hurt op­ti­mistic about can­cer treat­ment

The China Post - - ARTS -

Vet­eran Bri­tish ac­tor John Hurt has said that his can­cer treat­ment is go­ing “ter­rif­i­cally well” and he is op­ti­mistic.

The 75- year- old ac­tor said in June that he had been di­ag­nosed with early stage pan­cre­atic can­cer and was un­der­go­ing treat­ment.

In an in­ter­view with the Ra­dio Times pub­lished Mon­day, Hurt said: “I can’t say I worry about mor­tal­ity, but it’s im­pos­si­ble to get to my age and not have a lit­tle con­tem­pla­tion of it.”
