It is with great sadness we have to report that Rutger Hauer, who played the role of Master Xehanort in 'Kingdom Hearts III', has sadly passed away this past Friday in his home in the Netherlands after contracting a brief illness, with his funeral taking place today. Rutger Hauer was an acclaimed Dutch actor known for his roles in Blade Runner, Sin City, Batman Begins, and many other films. By taking up the mantle of being the English voice of Master Xehanort, Rutger Hauer had the near impossible task of trying to live up to the late Leonard Nimoy's legacy of voicing the main villain of the Dark Seeker Saga. Thankfully, he ended up giving a tremendous performance that did justice to the character of Master Xehanort in the villain's swan song.

RIP Rutger Hauer
