Harry Dean Stanton, Actor and WWII Veteran, Dies at Age 91

Harry Dean Stanton, the gaunt actor of many cult films and TV shows including Paris Texas, Cool Hand Luke, Repo Man and Twin Peaks has died aged 91.

Harry Dean Stanton, the gaunt, hollow-eyed, scene-stealing character actor who broke out of obscurity in his late 50s in two starring movie roles and capped his career with an acclaimed characterization as a corrupt polygamist on the HBO series "Big Love", died on Friday in Los Angeles.

Stanton worked, over 60 years, for some of most renowned directors of Hollywood like Francis Ford Coppola in The Godfar:Part II; Wim Wenders in Paris, Texas; Sam Peckinpah in Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid; Martin Scorsese in The last temptation of Christ, and Ridley Scott in Alien. He played Tramp in Cool Hand Luke and an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent in The Godfather Part II, before scoring one of his best known roles as engineering tech Alien in Ridley Scott's Alien in 1979, followed by films like Escape from NY.

Stanton was born in Kentucky to a tobacco farmer father and a hairdresser mother. Following high school, Stanton served in the Navy as a cook on an ammunitions ship in the Pacific during World War II - he was in the Battle of Okinawa - then enrolled at the University of Kentucky to study journalism and radio arts.

Stanton's last role was in Lucky - a film to be released later this month. He starred in both Repo Man and Red Dawn ("Avenge me!") that very same year. Those eager to delve into more of Stanton's work, however, will be able to catch him in Lucky, which will hit theaters on September 29. Ultimately, Stanton decided it was "too much work" to be a leading man. "She left me for Tom Cruise", he says in the film. "But I got those roles because I was angry, because that's what I projected. and I had an extreme lack of self-confidence". He further said that Stanton was a person who was loved by all in the entertainment industry and he earned all the reputation and respect on his own through his excellent and fone work.
