Jurassic park star Richard Attenborough dies at 90

Lord Richard Attenborough — the English actor who made dinosaurs come to life in “Jurassic Park” — has died after years of poor health.

Attenborough was one of England’s leading actors … but was also a director and producer. He’s probably best known for “Jurassic Park” … but also starred as Santa Claus in the remake of “Miracle On 34th Street”

His 70-year career also included “The Great Escape” with Steve McQueen … and he directed “Gandhi” — which won 8 Oscars.

Attenborough’s son told the BBC his father died Sunday at lunchtime — he’d been living in a nursing home with his wife for the past few years.

Attenborough was 90.
