Larry Hagman has passed away from complications related to cancer. The legendary Dallas star was 81.
Hagman - who also appeared recently on Nip/Tuck and Desperate Housewives - was surrounded by loved ones at a Dallas hospital yesterday around 4:20 p.m. when he passed.
He had announced in the summer of 2011 that he had been diagnosed with a "treatable" form of cancer, but then celebrated a few months ago by claiming it was in "remission."
Said Warner Bros. TV and Dallas executive producers Cynthia Cidre and Michael M. Robin in a joint statement:
Hagman was “a giant, a larger-than-life personality whose iconic performance as J.R. Ewing will endure as one of the most indelible in entertainment history. He truly loved portraying this globally recognized character, and he leaves a legacy of entertainment, generosity and grace.”
the veteran star is survived by his wife of over 58 years, Maj; two children and five grandkids. Our thoughts go out to them.
