Dallas star Larry Hagman has died at the age of 81

The actor, who was famed for playing J.R. Ewing on the hit show, died at a Dallas hospital on Friday after complications with his recent battle with cancer.

He returned to Dallas to reprise his role as cunning villain J.R. in the show’s reboot, which started airing in June of this year.

“Larry was back in his beloved Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved most,” the star’s family said in a statement.

His co-star Linda Gray, who played his on-screen wife Sue Ellen Ewing, was at his bedside when he died at approximately 4.30pm, her agent Jeffrey Lane has stated.

Mr. Lane added that Patrick Duffy was also at Hagman’s bedside at Medical City Dallas Hospital.

Every episode of the old time Dallas series was/is a classic, but the ones when he was shot and the culprit was revealed were incredibly powerful and reminiscent of the man that was J.R. Ewing.

Rest in Peace sir.
