Cult US actor Harry Dean Stanton dies aged 91

Harry Dean Stanton’s final on-screen role can be seen in the upcoming film “Lucky.”
The acting bug bit him after he performed there - and he headed to California. He sang and played rhythm guitar and harmonica in a Tex-Mex band that did weekly gigs at The Mint in Los Angeles. Years later, he portrayed an Ozark musician in Chrystal (2004).
The starring role parallels Stanton's own life, according to Kelly. The omnipresent cigarette dangling from his lips helped with that.
The shambling, craggy-face performer often played loners and criminals, and made waves with roles in films like Ridley Scott's Alien, the Cannes Palme D'or-winning Paris, Texas, Cool Hand Luke opposite Paul Newman and many other films and TV shows.
Roger Ebert once said that any movie with Stanton in the cast couldn't be all bad. In Wim Wenders' 1984 rural drama "Paris, Texas", Stanton's near-wordless performance is laced with moments of humor and poignancy.
In Alex Cox's satirical cult sensation Repo Man (1984), Stanton recruits a young punk rocker (Emilio Estevez) to seize cars, just like him.
The late faultfinder Roger Ebert once said no motion picture can be through and through terrible in the event that it incorporates Stanton in a supporting part, and the wide clique of fans that included chiefs and his kindred on-screen characters felt the same.
Stanton was born in West Irvine in 1926 to a tobacco farmer father and a cook mother.
Stanton landed his first leading role for Paris, Texas during an unassuming conversation with Sam Shepard at a bar in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Stanton was known for his quirky characterizations in an acting career that dated to the mid-1950s. "I could get to learn about all of them", he told Interview's Ingrid Sischy in January 1991.
"Repo Man", released that same year, became another signature film: Stanton starred as the world-weary boss of an auto repossession firm who instructs Estevez in the tricks of the hazardous trade. He'll be seen on screen posthumously in Lucky, which is set to hit theaters on September 29, and on the HBO series Getting On.
He said he could have been an executive himself yet "it was excessively work".
Asked by Lynch in the 2012 documentaryPartly Fiction how he wanted to be remembered answered succinctly.
"She cleared out me for Tom Cruise", Stanton said regularly.
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.
