Harry Dean Stanton, the legendary character actor who appeared in "Repo Man," "Twin Peaks," and "Big Love," has died at age 91.

Stanton died of natural causes, Variety reported, and fellow actors and friends mourned the loss Friday.

John Cryor, who starred alongside Stanton in 1986's "Pretty in Pink," posted a photo of the two on set with the caption, "Was an honor, man. #RIPHarryDeanStanton"

"Baby Driver" director Edgar Wright also posted a still of Stanton from "Repo Man."

Longtime Stanton collaborator David Lynch, who worked with him on the "Twin Peaks" revival, released a statement, writing, "The great Harry Dean Stanton has left us. There went a great one. There's nobody like Harry Dean. Everyone loved him. And with good reason. He was a great actor (actually beyond great) - and a great human being - so great to be around him!!! You are really going to be missed Harry Dean!!! Loads of love to you wherever you are now!!!"

Actor Shawn Doyle, who acted with Stanton in "Big Love," tweeted a tribute to the actor. 

Horror film director John Carpenter, who directed the actor in "Escape From New York," also eulogized Stanton.

Olivia Wilde tweeted that Stanton was the "definition of cool," and recounted her experience working with him on 2006's "Alpha Dog."
