In his down time, Stanton played poker with John Huston (Anjelica's father) and golfed with his friend Jack Nicholson, with whom he lived for a period in a Laurel Canyon house in the '60s.

Author Stephen King, whose book Christine and story "The Green Mile", were made into movies starring Stanton, called the actor "great", while Olivia Wilde, the actress who appeared with Stanton in Alpha Dogs, recalled that he was the "definition of cool".

Among his final roles, he played Sheriff Lloyd in Frank and Ava, which is now in post-production, and Carl Rodd on the reboot of the TV series Twin Peaks.

In a career spanning 60 years, he worked with some of Hollywood's most notable directors, such as Frances Ford Coppola on the "The Godfather Part Two" and "One From the Heart", as well as Martin Scorsese, David Lynch and Ridley Scott. "I don't want to deal with any consciousness afterward".

Never one to let age slow him down - he was 91 - the actor was seen in a highly praised role in the third season of "Twin Peaks," which just finished airing on the third of September. In Wim Wenders' 1984 rural drama "Paris, Texas", he earned acclaim for his subtle and affecting portrayal of a man so deeply haunted by something in his past that he abandons his young son and society to wander silently in the desert.

He said: "The great Harry Dean Stanton has left us".

The late critic Roger Ebert once said no movie can be altogether bad if it includes Stanton in a supporting role, and the wide cult of fans that included directors and his fellow actors felt the same. "There's nobody like Harry Dean", Lynch said Friday evening, joining a chorus of praise for the actor. He was a great actor (actually beyond great) - and a great human being - so great to be around him!

Lynch, a continuous teammate with the performer in ventures like "Wild on the most fundamental level" and the current reboot of "Twin Peaks", said in an announcement after Stanton's demise that "Everybody cherished him". I'm a good bro, too.

He later studied acting at the Pasadena Playhouse in Pasadena, Calif. Stanton played a tortured man desperately struggling to deal with his past, and for much of the film he manages to speak volumes without saying a single word.

Stanton also found his way into a key role in a hit TV series, HBO's "Big Love".

During the Second world war, he served as a cook on a Navy ship in the Pacific during the battle of Okinawa.
