We are totally devastated to hear that dear Larry Hagman has passed away. A genuinely lovely man and true icon who was so supportive and generous to this website and his millions of fans around the world. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.
Larry Hagman who spent more than a decade playing TV villain JR Ewing has died at the age of 81, his family says.
Hagman, who had suffered from cancer and cirrhosis of the liver, died in hospital on Friday afternoon, according to a family statement.
Long-time friend Linda Gray, who played Sue Ellen in the hit series, was by his bedside when he died.
“Larry Hagman was my best friend for 35 years,” said Ms Gray in a statement released by her agent.
“He was the Pied Piper of life and brought joy to everyone he knew. He was creative, generous, funny, loving and talented and I will miss him enormously.
“He was an original and lived life to the full.”
In a statement, Larry’s family said: “Larry was back in his beloved Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved most.
“Larry’s family and close friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday.
“When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for.
“The family requests privacy at this time.”
