Director David Lynch, who cast Stanton in Twin Peaks
: Fire Walk With Me, Wild at Heart, The Straight Story and the recent Twin Peaks
: The Return, said of the actor in a statement , "The great Harry Dean Stanton
has left us. There went a great one. There's nobody like Harry Dean
. Everyone loved him. And with good reason. He was a great actor (actually beyond great) - and a great human being - so great to be around him!!! You are really going to be missed Harry Dean
!!! Loads of love to where you are now!!!"
