Kelly gave no further details on the cause. He appeared with longtime friend Jack Nicholson in "The Missouri Breaks". I told him I wanted to play something of some beauty or sensitivity. (Nicholson moved in after sharing a place with screenwriter Robert Towne.) They first appeared together in Monte Hellman's Ride in the Whirlwind (1966), which Nicholson also wrote, and Stanton always said he learned about "acting natural" from that experience.

Many may remember the actor from the Ridley Scott-directed Alien, John Carpenter's Escape From New York, Alex Cox's cult sensation Repo Man, or John Hughes' Pretty in Pink in 1986.

Stanton had a long career in Hollywood that began in the early 1950s. "Can't imagine telling him to rest", tweeted director Joss Whedon after the news broke. "Martin Scorsese, John Huston, David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcock".

He said he could have been an executive himself yet "it was excessively work".

The actor, originally from Kentucky, is also famous for his interpretation of Travis Henderson in Paris, Texas, lone outcast, written by Sam Shepard adapted into a film by German director Wim Wenders. The movie won awards, and Stanton's performance was lauded. 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.

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

Aged 58 he starred in the indie classic, as well as Alex Cox's Repo Man.

His legend would only grow.

Lynch, who cast him in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, The Straight Story and Twin Peaks, mourned the actor's death.

He died at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, his agent confirmed.

"The magnificent Harry Dean Stanton has left us". He's got this easygoing nature. "You are really going to be missed Harry Dean!" As a musician, he can sing so beautifully tears just flow out of your eyes. On Thursday, the multitalented actor passed away in Los Angeles. Resolved to make it in Hollywood, he picked tobacco to procure his admission west.

Three years at the Pasadena Playhouse prepared him for television and movies.

After decades in the trenches of the industry, Stanton emerged from obscurity as a testament to how the hard work and resilience of an artist could mold something versatile and spellbinding in front of a camera.

Stanton never married, although he has claimed in the past to have "one or two children".
