Harry Dean Stanton, Actor and WWII Veteran, Dies at Age 91

The veteran character actor died yesterday at the age of 91, with his agent confirming he passed away peacefully at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles.

Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker, described Stanton as "incomparable" while Lynch labelled him a "great one". Also, all things considered. "He was an exceptional man and I am honored to have had the chance to share the screen with him", wrote Mark Ruffalo. His credits also include "Repo Man", "Cool Hand Luke", "Paris, Texas", "Alien", "Wild at Heart" and "Twin Peaks".

After the success of "Paris, Texas", more notable roles followed for Stanton.

The film's promotional account tweeted about the death of the film's star.

It is Jack Nicholson who pluck out these roles a little shabby offering in 1966 the headliner of his western Hurricane of vengeance.

In the ensuing two decades, Stanton secured a string of tiny roles in TV shows and low-budget films, including The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin, Gunsmoke and Johnny Ringo. There was a great one.

Although the prolific actor worked with several popular directors from the industry, including David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcock, John Huston and Martin Scorsese, he was never nominated for any principal acting awards. "Too much work", he said. His skills as an actor came to be so well-regarded that the powerful film critic Roger Ebert once reportedly said, "No movie featuring Harry Dean Stanton can be altogether bad".

More recently he reunited with Lynch on Showtime's "Twin Peaks: The Return" where he reprised his role as the cranky trailer park owner Carl from "Fire Walk With Me".

"The great Harry Dean Stanton has left us.There went a great one".

Afterward, he utilized music as an escape from his folks' quarreling and the occasionally severe treatment he was subjected to by his dad.

"Paris, Texas" stars Stanton as a wanderer with amnesia who finds and reconnects with his family.

He was a cook on board a ship during the battle of Okinawa in 1945 during his US Navy service in World War Two. Determined to make it in Hollywood, he picked tobacco to earn his fare west.

After moving to Los Angeles, he performed at the Pasadena Playhouse.

Stanton had a long career in Hollywood that began in the early 1950s.
