In Memoriam Influential People We've Lost This Year

Beloved character actor Harry Dean Stanton passed away of natural causes in Los Angeles on Friday. Other movies that he starred in included "Alien", "Paris, Texas", "Cool Hand Luke" and more.

The late faultfinder Roger Ebert once said no motion picture can be through and through bad in the event that it incorporates Stanton in a supporting part, and the wide clique of fans that included chiefs and his kindred on-screen characters felt the same. Loads of love to you wherever you are now!' Stanton even had a thankless role in The Godfather Part II as FBI Man #1, a character he would reprise in The Godfather: A Novel for Television in 1977.

Mr. Stanton spent two decades typecast in Hollywood as cowboys and villains before his unusual talents began to attract notice on the strength of his performances in the movies "Straight Time" (1978); "Alien", "Wise Blood" and "The Rose" (all 1979); and "Escape From New York" (1981).

A statement from @DAVID_LYNCH on the passing of the great Harry Dean Stanton. "He's got a patch over one eye and a derby hat", Stanton, in a 2008 interview with Esquire, recalled Nicholson pitching him.

News of Stanton's passing has elicited an outpouring of respect and love on social media from people who worked with the legendary actor or simply witnessed his work.

His agent said that Stanton "is survived by family and friends who loved him". He studied theater at the University of Kentucky, served in the Navy in World War II, and then went to Hollywood.

"I had to decide if I wanted to be a singer or an actor".

He appeared in more than 200 movies and TV shows in a career dating to the mid-1950s. It was just the beginning of a run in the 1980s when Stanton would take more prominent roles in some staple films of the 1980s.

"The great Harry Dean Stanton has left us", Lynch said Friday.

Hamill posted a black and white photograph of Stanton on Twitter, writing alongside it: "Sad to say goodbye to the incomparable Harry Dean Stanton - so profoundly authentic in every role he inhabited".

He also appeared in films for a number of famously creative directors, including including Francis Ford Coppola, Wim Wenders, John Hughes, Martin Scorcese, Terry Gilliam and David Lynch.

He never married but enjoyed a long relationship with actress Rebecca De Mornay, who was 35 years his junior.
