Tributes to Dallas' Larry Hagman Flood In

Larry Hagman died on the 23rd of November, aged 81, reportedly due to complications of throat cancer. Best known for his role as the Dallas villain J.R. Ewing, a ruthless and callous oil baron who has consistently been listed in countdowns of the best villains and best television characters of all time. 

Although there have already been a variety of official events to remember his life planned, celebrities that knew him have already begun paying tribute to the beloved American actor. 

Barbara Eden who played the eponymous character in I Dream of Jeannie, alongside Hagman, said: "He was such a key element in my life for so long and even, years after I Dream of Jeannie; our paths crossed many times." She added, "I, like many others believed he had beat Cancer and yet we are reminded that life is never guaranteed." 

Linda Gray, who portrayed his Dallas on screen wife, also paid tribute. "Larry Hagman was my best friend for 35 years." she explained, reported E! "He was the Pied Piper of life and brought joy to everyone he knew. He was creative, funny, loving and talented, and I will miss him enormously. He was an original and lived life to the full. The world was a brighter place because of Larry." 

There'll be a private service for him in both Dallas and Los Angeles, as well as another ceremony at the Southfork Ranch in Texas, the place that J.R. Ewing called his home, on December 2nd.
