Our thoughts are with Harry's friends and family during this hard time. He is believed to have died of natural causes. He most recently appeared as Carl Rodd in the Showtime revival of Twin Peaks.

Stanton was born July 14, 1926, in Irvine, Kentucky.

The quintessentially American actor was hired by such famed directors as Francis Ford Coppola (1974's The Godfather: Part II), John Huston (1979's Wise Blood), Robert Altman (1985's Fool for Love), Martin Scorsese (1988's The Last Temptation of Christ), John Frankenheimer (1990's The Fourth War) and Frank Darabont (1999's The Green Mile).

The private star seldom talked about his private life but had stated in the past that he has 'one or two children'. Impossible to cover his legacy in brief but here's a few favs: "Alien, Paris, Texas, Repo Man". He appeared in more than 100 films and 50 television shows, including the films "Alien" and "Repo Man" and the series "Big Love".

By his mid-80s, the Lexington Film League in his local Kentucky had established the Harry Dean Stanton Fest and movie producer Sophie Huber had influenced the narrative "To harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction", which included critique from Wenders, Sam Shepard and Kristofferson.

Harry Dean Stanton has passed away at the age of 91.

"I watched every second of it again and again over hours, days, weeks and months these last two years".

On Friday evening, David Lynch commemorated the late actor by saying, "The great Harry Dean Stanton has left us".

"There's nobody like Harry Dean", Lynch said in a statement.

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.

Harry Dean Stanton plays opposite Molly Ringwald in 1986's "Pretty in Pink".

Three years at the Pasadena Playhouse set him up for TV and motion pictures.

Not many actors can disappear into a character quite like Stanton could. He also stars with Lynch in the upcoming film "Lucky", the directorial debut of actor John Carroll Lynch, which has been described as a love letter to Stanton's life and career. He will verbalize his sentence thanks to a therapy group: "I called one night to tell him how much I hated it". Stanton is best known for his role as the polygamist leader in HBO's Big Love and as Andy's out-of-work father in Pretty in Pink.
