Legendary character actor Harry Dean Stanton of "The Godfather: Part II" and "Pretty in Pink" has died.

John Carpenter, who directed Stanton in Escape from NY, paid tribute to the actor, calling him "a wonderful man". The two most recently worked together on the Twin Peaks revival, and previously teamed up for Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, the 1993 miniseries Hotel Room, The Straight Story, and Inland Empire.

Kelly said Stanton died of natural causes, but gave no further details.

Director David Lynch, a frequent collaborator, says everyone loved Stanton, who was great as a human being and beyond great as an actor.

"The great Harry Dean Stanton has left us.There went a great one". In a statement, the actor's rep said that he is survived by his family and all of those people who love him.

Not many actors can disappear into a character quite like Stanton could. Acting won, but many years of struggle would pass before Stanton would become a household name.

Ozil and Ramsey to miss Arsenal's clash with Cologne
Wenger has confirmed that Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil will miss the game and be rested with Chelsea at the weekend in mind. 'Yes. The Gunners take on the Bundesliga side at the Emirates, just three days before the trip to London rivals, Chelsea.

Director and actor Samuel West tweeted: "Harry Dean Stanton in PARIS, TEXAS". You are really going to be missed Hary Dean! "Goodbye, Harry Dean. Rest in peace".

Stanton was born in Kentucy to a tobacco farmer, living a rural life before heading off to be a cook in the Navy in the Pacific theatre during World War II.

Harry Dean Stanton graced the silver screen for almost seven decades.

Stanton began his on-screen career back in 1954 with a role in an episode of the television series, Inner Sanctum, as a character named Andrew. "Loads of love to you wherever you are now!". He will verbalize his sentence thanks to a therapy group: "I called one night to tell him how much I hated it".

His final role sees him play a 90-year-old atheist in the drama Lucky, which debuted at SXSW in March. Expectedly, Hollywood was quick to mourn Stanton's passing and honor his legacy. Whether it was an awe-inspiring lead role, such as in "Paris, Texas", or an unforgettable bit part, such as in "The Green Mile", Stanton always provided films with an influx of captivating acting, and film enthusiasts will never forget him for that. "Well, I realized early on that if I became an actor, I could play a writer and a sculptor and a painter and be all the things you just don't have time to be in your lifetime".
