Harry Dean Stanton Latest News, Photos, and Videos

Stanton's final role, "Lucky", was directed by John Carroll Lynch in his directorial debut.

Actor Harry Dean Stanton died in Los Angeles Friday at age 91.

Director David Lynch, a frequent collaborator, says everyone loved Stanton, who was great as a human being and beyond great as an actor. And with good reason.

Tributes have been paid to actor Harry Dean Stanton who starred in a number of classic films. "He was an exceptional man and I am honored to have had the chance to share the screen with him", wrote Mark Ruffalo. While films such as "Repo Man" gave him the opportunity to use his unique abilities to be quick and playful, "Paris, Texas" was a somber film that allowed him to be spellbinding in the quietest of ways. His sadly stoic conveyance of a monolog of contrition to his better half, played by Nastassja Kinski, through a restricted mirror has turned into the pivotal turning point in his vocation, in a part he said was his top pick.

Stanton received no accolades for his role in the film, which makes it one of the more under-appreciated performances of all time-a performance which famed film critic Roger Ebert referred to as a "miracle".

The film's promotional account tweeted about the death of the film's star. He began attracting notice in higher-profile movies such as "Aliens", "Private Benjamin" and "Escape From New York", but it was with 1984's "Paris, Texas" that he rose to star status.

His estimated net worth was $10 million dollars from his various film and TV roles. "Can't imagine telling him to rest", tweeted director Joss Whedon after the news broke. "Martin Scorsese, John Huston, David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcock". "Too much work", he said. He also sang and played guitar and harmonica in impromptu sessions with friends, performed a song in "Paris, Texas" and once recorded a duet with Bob Dylan. "I had no inkling he was considering me for the lead in his movie". Following high school, Stanton served in the Navy as a cook on an ammunitions ship in the Pacific during World War II - he was in the Battle of Okinawa - then enrolled at the University of Kentucky to study journalism and radio arts.

Stanton was famous for his gaunt, worn looks. Stanton died less than two months after Shepard, a playwright, 73-year-old with whom he had a close relationship.
