Harry Dean Stanton

Harry Dean Stanton, the beloved character actor who starred in over 200 films such as Repo Man, Paris, Texas, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, Big Love and Pretty in Pink, died of natural causes in Los Angeles on September 15th. He was 91.

"The great Harry Dean Stanton has left us," Twin Peaks director David Lynch said in a statement. "There went a great one. 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!!! You are really going to be missed Harry Dean!!! Loads of love to where you are now!!"
