Sir Ian Holm ‘in cancer scare’

December 16, 2001 at 11:10 am by xoanon  - 

Sir Ian Holm, one of Britain’s most-respected actors, has flown to America for urgent treatment after a cancer scare, according to reports.

The 70-year-old, who appears in the forthcoming Lord of the Rings film as the hobbit Bilbo, is undergoing treatment for a prostate condition, according to The Mail on Sunday newspaper.

The paper reports that he underwent an operation in the summer.

His agent, Tor Belfridge, told the newspaper: “He is not in the country. He is currently in America receiving treatment. It is a personal matter.”

We at TheOneRing.net wish him and his family all the best in these hard times.
