Death Obituary : Cult Hollywood veteran Harry Dean Stanton dies aged 91

(CNN)Harry Dean Stanton, the longtime character actor whose face had its own unique character, has died at 91, according to his agent, John S. Kelly.

Stanton passed away Friday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

People are paying tributes on social media.


In memoriam: They broke the mold when Harry Dean Stanton was created. He danced with me at my thirtieth birthday party and the room stood still; boy Harry could dance, he was so elegant. When I asked him to be in Freak the Mighty he just said "Sharon tell me if it's good, I'll take your word for it". I learned a lot from that.
Harry, Love & God's Speed on Angel's Wings.

Really sad to hear of the passing of my old friend, the talented actor and musician Harry Dean Stanton, seen here when I first met him on the set of Missouri Breaks. He was truly an original and I feel blessed to have known him. Vaya con Dios amigo...

We've lost a major part of our Dan Tana's family. Legendary actor and friend, Harry Dean Stanton has passed away. He was truly one of a kind and part of what made Dan Tana's special. This is where he held court over the years. It was his hang-out and we loved having him here. Harry's sense of humor and generosity will be deeply missed. There was nobody like him and his spirit and presence will continue to be felt.
It was an honor to serve and know you Mr. Stanton.

A great friend has passed... a great actor, too. It was a great thrill to sit in with Harry Dean Stanton at a club in Hollywood. We played Dylan's 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door." I felt that Harry Dean was knockin' on heaven's door his whole life! A deep soul...jd

RIP: Harry Dean Stanton. We've all seen ALIEN so seek him out in MISSOURI BREAKS. My favorite death scene: like a Remington bronze cowboy.
We're deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Harry Dean Stanton, one of the all-time great characters actors

Julie S. Turner This is going to sound weird to some but.............I know Harry's been in so many movies and played some wonderful characters but my most favorite of his movie roles was in "Pretty In Pink" as a single, hard drinking, down-on-his-luck father raising his teenage daughter (Molly Ringwald) after the mother abandoned them. He was so loving and caring and gave such good advice to his daughter who was going through the pains of growing up, needing a mother, and navigating her first love - the kind of father many a girl would have loved. RIP Harry
