Larry Hagman, who starred in the hit TV series Dallas as the scheming oil baron J R Ewing, has died.
His family said in a statement that the 81-year-old died in a Dallas hospital following complications from his battle with cancer.
He had suffered from liver cancer and cirrhosis of the liver in the 1990s after decades of drinking.
Dallas, which made its premiere on the CBS network in 1978, made Hagman a superstar.
The show quickly became one of the network's top-rated programmes, built an international following and inspired a spin-off, imitators and a revival in 2012.
"Larry was back in his beloved hometown of Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved the most," his family said in a statement. "Larry's family and closest friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday."

Certainly had a good run of fame, I remember him first from I dream of Genie, a slightly more comic role. RIP Larry.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Dunno about that, Dallas was farcical.

Although I followed Dallas in its early life I had lost interest by the time of the notoious shower/dream episode. Larry always gave his best though and never took himself too seriously.

Terry Wogan told a nice story about Larry going to the races here in the UK wearing the traditional morning suit but still with his stetson on. He was scattering $100 bills around but when they were picked up they had Larry's face printed on them!

RIP Larry.
