Harrison Ford is mourning the loss of his longtime manager, PATRICIA McQUEENEY, who died in hospital in Santa Monica, California on 4 September (05).

McQueeney, 77, started representing Ford in 1970 after she was encouraged to advise the carpenter-turned-actor and give his career a boost.

She launched her own management agency in 1973, with Ford among her top clients and she started representing the movie star exclusively in 1986.

McQueeney received the American Film Institute's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000.
