Actor Harry Dean Stanton, known for his roles in films like The Godfather II, Alien and Cool Hand Luke, has died of natural causes at the age of 91.
The Kentucky-born star had a career which spanned more than six decades, appearing in dozens of films, including 1984's Paris, Texas and Repo Man.
More recently, he appeared in the hit HBO show Big Love, and this year's revival of the cult classic Twin Peaks.
Stanton's last role was in Lucky - a film to be released later this month.
He died at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Friday, his agent John Kelly said in a statement.


Media captionHarry Dean Stanton told Ridley Scott he "didn't like monster pictures"
He said Stanton was "beloved in the entertainment industry" and earned a reputation for his "meticulous preparation" and easygoing personality.
Twin Peaks creator David Lynch, who cast Stanton in his films The Straight Story, Inland Empire and Wild at Heart, among others, said: "There's nobody like Harry Dean. Everyone loved him. And with good reason. He was a great actor (actually beyond great) - and a great human being - so great to be around him!!!"
