Harry Dean Stanton


Born - 14 July 1926, West Irvine, Kentucky, USA
Died - 17 September 2017

Our attention has been drawn to the disappearance of our three latest obituaries - Italian actress Fernanda Borsatti, Hungarian director Karoly Makk, and, most notably iconic american character star Harry Dean Stanton. This came about through a change in servers. Featuring in more than 100 films, the laconic, hangdog Stanton's first appearance came in Hitchcock's The Wrong Man (1956). Mainly cast as 'countryfied' villains in his early film years, he later excelled with leading roles in Paris, Texas and Repo Man (both 1984). Other notable parts came in Cool Hand Luke (1967), Kelly's Heroes (1970), Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (1973), The Missouri Breaks (1976), Alien (1979), Escape from New York (1981), Pretty in Pink (1986), Wild at Heart (1990) and The Green Mile (1999). His last roles, the lead in Lucky (2017) and a sheriff in Frank and Ava (2018), are still to be seen. He died from lung cancer.
