Harry Dean Stanton, one of the most recognisable character actors in cinema, has died of natural causes at the age of 91.

The American star, whose unique look made him an instantly recognisable on-screen presence, passed away in Los Angeles leaving behind a list of credits spanning over six decades.

Stanton starred in a whole range of classic films (Cool Hand Luke and Alien to name but a few) until his breakthrough lead role arrived in Wim Wenders' Paris, Texas in 1984 when he was 58.

He also crossed over to television familiar to many as cult leader Roman Grant on HBO drama Big Love which ran from 2006-11 and, most recently, in David Lynch's Twin Peaks revival. He'd worked with the director previously on films Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and Inland Empire.

His extensive list of credits include Repo Man, The Last Temptation of Christ, The Pledge and Pretty in Pink in which he played the father of Molly Ringwald's lead character.

Stanton, whose Hollywood friends included Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson and Sam Shepard - who passed away earlier this year - will posthumously appear in Lucky which is set to be released later this year.
