Cult actor Harry Dean Stanton dies at 91; condolences pour in

Stanton has been honored with the annual Harry Dean Stanton Film Festival in Lexington, Kentucky.

John Carpenter, who directed Stanton in Escape from NY, paid tribute to the actor, calling him "a wonderful man".

The iconic actor appeared in films such as Repo Man, One From The Heart as well as a recent reboot of TV's Twin Peaks.

He was born July 14, 1926, in West Irvine, Kentucky, to a tobacco farmer father and hairdresser mother who divorced when he was a teenager.

Stanton also appeared in The Godfather Part II (1974), The Green Mile (1999), Cool Hand Luke (1967), and more recently Alpha Dog (2005). Hellman stated that Stanton "had the same quality as all great actors", and shared an anecdote about Stanton's drive as an actor: "I think Harry summed it up best himself when he told me some advice Jack had given him".

Never one to pigeonhole himself, the actor played a convict, an Federal Bureau of Investigation detective, and a polygamist offshoot leader over the course of his decades-long career.

His big break came in 1984 when he was cast in Wim Wenders' film Paris, Texas. However, as time went on he found himself making notable appearances in films such as Alien, Escape from NY, and Repo Man.

"There's nobody like Harry Dean". He passed away of natural causes yesterday at the age of 91.

Stanton is slated to star in "Lucky" alongside David Lynch and Ron Livingston. In a statement, the actor's rep said that he is survived by his family and all of those people who love him.

Aside from acting, he was in the Navy during World War II and fought in the Battle of Okinawa.

"As a person, Harry Dean is just so attractive".

That part would serve as a stepping stone for a long-lasting career that would continue well into 2017, including a return to the cult classic Twin Peaks, where the actor re-teamed with frequent collaborator David Lynch in this year's revival on Showtime.

At the point when given an uncommon turn as a main man, Stanton more than took advantage of it.

Largely a character actor throughout his career, Stanton will often be remembered for small yet memorable roles in great films.
