Legendary “Dallas” actor Larry Hagman has passed away at the age of 81-years-old. He was in a hospital in Dallas, Texas, where he passed away with his show co-stars Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy by his side.
Linda’s agent, Jeffrey Lane revealed, “Linda was with him. They had been friends for 35 years and they had worked together for many years so obviously it is devastating. She called and told me. She sounded very sad.”
Larry was in the midst of filming the new reboot for the popular TV show. The Hagman family’s spokesman said that they were all “devastated”. In 1995, Larry underwent a liver transplant that saved his life and he had also touted his turn as a vegan.
Last night, Linda said, “Larry Hagman was my best friend for 35 years. He was the Pied Piper of life and brought joy to everyone who knew him. He was creative, generous, funny, loving and talented. I’ll miss him enormously.”
What a shame that he has passed away, he was a truly talented actor. May he rest in peace. Thanks for all of the drama, JR.
