Actor Larry Hagman Dead At 81
died yesterday at the age of 81.
Hagman was at Medical City Dallas Hospital when he died Friday afternoon from complications of his recent battle with cancer, the Dallas Morning News reported, citing members of his family. Despite his fragile health, the actor had returned to Texas from his home in California to film season one of TNT’s "Dallas" reboot and part of season two. The original show, in which Hagman played a conniving businessman who people loved to hate, ran from 1978 to 1991 on CBS. "Larry was back in his beloved Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved most," the family said in a statement, the Morning News reported. "Larry’s family and close friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday. When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. The family requests privacy at this time."Here's the first episode of I Dream Of Jeannie from 1965.
