  • Actor Harry Dean Stanton of'Twin Peaks''Pretty in Pink and'Paris Texas' Dies at 91

Screenwriter Sam Shepard, had met Harry Dean Stanton in a bar in Santa Fe, New Mexico. (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.

He recently appeared in the revival of "Twin Peaks", which was released this summer.

He was born in the West of Irvine in 1926 to a tobacco farmer father and a cook mother.

He also appeared in films for a number of famously creative directors, including including Francis Ford Coppola, Wim Wenders, John Hughes, Martin Scorcese, Terry Gilliam and David Lynch. "After all these years, I finally got the part I wanted to play", THR quotes Stanton as saying of that film.

Never one to let age slow him down - he was 91 - the actor was seen in a highly praised role in the third season of "Twin Peaks," which just finished airing on the third of September. Impossible to cover his legacy in brief but here's a few favs: "'Alien, ' 'Paris Texas, ' 'Repo Man'".

Prolific movie helmer John Carpenter, who directed Stanton in Escape from NY, posted on Twitter, "Harry Dean Stanton was a wonderful man, kind, and full of humor". If you need a better idea of how great Stanton was at his job, film critic Roger Ebert once said, "No movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad".

"The magnificent Harry Dean Stanton has left us".

After "Paris, Texas", Stanton hit the mainstream, with beloved roles in films like "Pretty in Pink" and "Repo Man".

Lynch, a frequent collaborator with the actor in projects like "Wild at Heart" and the recent reboot of "Twin Peaks", said in a statement after Stanton's death that "Everyone loved him. There's nobody like Harry Dean", Lynch said Friday evening, joining a chorus of praise for the actor. "Repo Man" became an independent cult film favorite with Stanton as a comically grizzled and paranoid vehicle repossession expert trying to pass on his dubious code of ethics to his apprentice. "You are really going to be missed Harry Dean!"

In his early years, he went by the name Dean Stanton because there was another actor named Harry Stanton.

Mark Ruffalo tweeted a video of a deleted Avengers scene that featured him and Stanton talking about the Hulk's powers and how he could contribute good to the world. He studied journalism and radio at the University of Kentucky before moving to California to flawless his craft at the Pasadena Playhouse.
