Iconic Actor Harry Dean Stanton Dies At The Age Of 91

Harry Dean Stanton always intense
Veteran character actor Harry Dean Stanton died on Friday at the age of 91. Of course (spoiler alert) Stanton gets eaten by the Alien monster, and that's the way it was until 1984, when he starred in Paris, Texas and the cult classic Repo Man. Stanton would make some sizeable television appearances as well, including that of Roman Grant on HBO's Big Love, not to mention recently reprising his Twin Peaks role as Carl Rodd on the series revival from Showtime this year.
His death, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, was confirmed by his agent, John S. Kelly.
"Twin Peaks" creator David Lynch paid tribute to the star on social media, saying, "There went a great one".
Along with his acting career, Stanton was a talented musician who sang and played guitar in the Harry Dean Stanton Band.
Lynch, a continuous teammate with the performer in ventures like "Wild on the most fundamental level" and the current reboot of "Twin Peaks", said in an announcement after Stanton's demise that "Everybody cherished him". There's nobody like Harry Dean. Whether it was an awe-inspiring lead role, such as in "Paris, Texas", or an unforgettable bit part, such as in "The Green Mile", Stanton always provided films with an influx of captivating acting, and film enthusiasts will never forget him for that. "You are really going to be missed Harry Dean!" "Can't imagine telling him to rest", tweeted director Joss Whedon after the news broke.
Harry Dean Stanton wasn't a leading man type, but he was versatile and could play complex characters in any genre.
Baby Driver director Edgar Wright tweeted a still of Stanton from Repo Man, captioning it, "RIP to the legendary Harry Dean Stanton".
Among his final roles, he played Sheriff Lloyd in Frank and Ava, which is now in post-production, and Carl Rodd on the reboot of the TV series Twin Peaks.
