Steven Spielberg says Richard Attenborough was "passionate about everything in life" after his fellow filmmaker died aged 90.
The Jurassic Park director, who chose Lord Attenborough to be "the perfect ringmaster to bring the dinosaurs back to life" in the films, said he is just one person in a long line of "Dickie's" fans.
Dickie Attenborough was passionate about everything in his life - family, friends, country and career.
He made a gift to the world with his emotional epic Gandhi and he was the perfect ringmaster to bring the dinosaurs back to life as John Hammond in Jurassic Park.
He was a dear friend and I am standing in an endless line of those who completely adored him.
