If We Encapsulate Richard Attenborough in Amber, Can We Clone Him?

By Roxanne Pfaus

Just short of his 91st birthday, Richard Attenborough died whilst in home care, after his health had been reportedly declining for quite some time. Not to be confused with his brother, David Attenborough, who has solidified himself as a  legendary narrator of natural films and documentaries, both siblings hold memorable positions in historic and modern media.

“Lord” Richard Attenborough is prolific in British film as an actor and director. Many will remember his famous performance in the Box Office classic “Jurassic Park” (1993)  His portrayal of the eccentric bio-engineer (John Hammond), who gave off a grandfatherly appearance with his stark white hair and beard, will remain a cinematic feat. His works in movies such as Gandhi, Doctor Dolittle (1967), Miracle on 34th street, among others, have not only scored him 31 awards in film, but will also be celebrated and surpass his time on earth.
