Actor Larry Hagman, the North Texas native who played the conniving and mischievous J.R. Ewing on the TV show Dallas, died Friday at a Dallas hospital. He was 81.
Hagman died at 4:20 p.m. Friday, Nov. 23 at Medical City Dallas Hospital from complications of his recent battle with cancer, members of his family told the Dallas Morning News.
Linda Gray's agent, Jeffrey Lane, said the actress was at Mr. Hagman's bedside when he died, according to The Sun in London. He said another co-star, Patrick Duffy, was also present. "They had been friends for 35 years and they had worked together for many years, so obviously it is devastating," Mr. Lane told The Sun.
