I found this on BBC News website.Wild was nominated for an Oscar for the role in Oliver! when he was just 16.He also starred in the late 1960's U.S. children's fantasy TV series HR Pufnstuf and a spin-off film,Pufnstuf,in 1970.He had a small role in the 1991 film Robin Hood:prince Of Thieves.He suffered from mouth cancer after years of heavy drinking and smoking and had his voice box and tongue removed.Wild's agent Alex Jay said the actor "died peacefully at midnight last night after a long battle with oral cancer".R.I.P. Jack.
