Oscar-winner Scofield dies of leukemia
One of those rare ones....I saw him perform in "Amadeus"
Scofield was an unusual star -- a family man who lived almost his entire life within a few miles of his birthplace and hurried home after work to his wife and children. He didn't seek the spotlight, gave interviews sparingly, and at times seemed to need coaxing to venture out, even onto the stage he loved.
Scofield reportedly had been offered a knighthood, but declined.
"It is just not an aspect of life that I would want," he once said. "If you want a title, what's wrong with Mr.?"
May he rest in peace.
