The Nightrider, remember him when you look at the night sky.

Aussie actor Vincent Gil, best-known for his role as Nightrider in Mad Max, has passed away at the age of 83. Gil’s first iconic role was in the classic 1974 biker flick, Stone, as a theatrical, top hat-wearing member of the Gravediggers bikie gang named Dr. Death.

Along with fellow Stone alumuni Hugh Keays-Byrne and Roger Ward, Gil went on to become a key cast member of the original Mad Max. His high-voltage turn as the doomed Crawford ‘Nightrider’ Montizano kicks off the film in a spectacular fashion, filling the screen with the kind of amphetamine-fuelled madness a sensible person will do their best to avoid in the real world.

Gil’s Nightrider may have only appeared briefly on-screen, but produced some of the most quotable lines in the whole franchise.
