Award-winning British filmmaker Michael Apted has died.
The visionary behind the camera for films like Coal Miner’s Daughter, The World Is Not Enough, Gorillas in the Mist, and Gorky Park, was 79.
His credits also include long-running British soap opera Coronation Street, historical drama series Rome, Chasing Mavericks, Masters of Sex, and the acclaimed documentary series 7 Up, which chronicled the lives of 14 British children every seven years from ages seven to 63.
Apted was a multiple BAFTA Awards and Directors Guild of America Awards winner, but he was never even nominated for an Oscar.
