"I think all actors will agree, no one gives a more honest, natural, truer performance than Harry Dean Stanton", director David Lynch said in presenting Stanton with the Inaugural "Harry Dean Stanton Award" in Los Angeles previous year.

John Carpenter, who directed Stanton in Escape from NY, paid tribute to the actor, calling him "a wonderful man".

According to Stanton's rep, the cult actor died of natural causes.

The official Twin Peaks account also shared an official statement from series creator David Lynch, saying, "There's nobody like Harry Dean. Harry Dean Stanton. My heart is broken, but at 91...a life well lived", while Mark Hamill wrote: 'Sad to say goodbye to the incomparable Harry Dean Stanton- so profoundly authentic in every role he inhabited'. Stanton's agent said that he will be survived by the "family and friends who loved him". He had a terribly memorable role in "The Green Mile", the Frank Darabont adaptation of the Stephen King novel, in which Stanton played a quirky inmate who acted as the condemned prisoner for dry runs of executions by electric chair. For Olivia Wilde, Harry Dean Stanton was the " definition of cool ". "May you rest in peace". In 1984, he got his first part as a leading man in "Paris, Texas", which won a host of awards, including the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. He was 91 years old. You are really going to be missed Hary Dean! Everybody loved him. And with good reason.

"Harry is a walking contradiction", Sophie Huber, who directed the 2012 documentary Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction, said in a 2013 interview with The Guardian.
