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

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

Our thoughts are with Harry's friends and family during this hard time.

Showtime's Twin Peaks revival recently concluded its third season, with no plans to bring it back for yet another season.

He was born July 14, 1926, in West Irvine, Kentucky, to a tobacco farmer father and hairdresser mother who divorced when he was a teenager.

Lynch also directed Stanton in "Wild at Heart" and "The Straight Story". "After all these years, I finally got the part I wanted to play", THR quotes Stanton as saying of that film. The couple divorced when Stanton was in high school and both later remarried. In Wim Wenders' 1984 rustic show "Paris, Texas", Stanton's close silent execution is bound with snapshots of cleverness and impact.

Hasina further said she would raise the Rohingya issue at the UN General Assembly in NY later this month. But she is facing sharp criticism for her response to the violence against Rohingya in the country.

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". In addition to his acting career, he led his own eclectic band called the Harry Dean Stanton Band, and would often play weekly gigs in L.A. clubs.

"We lost a legend today with the passing of Harry Dean Stanton", the tweet said. He had a cameo on "Two and a Half Men", which featured "Pretty in Pink" star Jon Cryer, and appeared in such movies as "The Avengers", "The Last Stand" and "Cool Hand Luke".

Stanton, who has died at the age of 91, played roles in film greats such as Alien, The Green Mile, Cool Hand Luke and The Godfather. In a statement, the actor's rep said that he is survived by his family and all of those people who love him. There's nobody like Harry Dean.

In another memorable line from the documentary, Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction, Lynch asked him how he would like to be remembered.

He has also continued to waive the economic sanctions on Iran that the USA agreed to lift as part of the agreement. Congress could then issue sanctions that, according to the plan, would force everybody back to the table.

Harry Dean Stanton has spent a lifetime in show-business. Everyone loved him. And with good reason.

Three years at the Pasadena Playhouse set him up for TV and motion pictures. Stanton's ex-cowboy Lucky is the core of the film, a lifelong smoker - not dissimilar to Stanton himself - who is shaken to pursue something greater after an accident. 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 other TV credits included "Alice", "Big Love", "Hotel Room" and "Dead Man's Walk".
