Lynch also directed Stanton in "Wild at Heart" and "The Straight Story". He later told the Los Angeles Times he was "finally playing the part I wanted to play".

Never one to pigeonhole himself, the actor played a convict, an Federal Bureau of Investigation detective, and a polygamist offshoot leader over the course of his decades-long career. But certainly the most prominent was his first lead role in Wim Wenders' Paris, Texas, which won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. He began attracting notice in higher-profile movies such as "Aliens", "Private Benjamin" and "Escape From New York", but it was with 1984's "Paris, Texas" that he rose to star status. But Independent and cult movie roles followed, with many other actors citing Harry Dean Stanton as a favourite to act with.

"We lost a legend today with the passing of Harry Dean Stanton", the tweet said. Those eager to delve into more of Stanton's work, however, will be able to catch him in Lucky, which will hit theaters on September 29.
