#RIP: LARRY HAGMAN, STAR OF “DALLAS” AND “I DREAM OF JEANNIE” PASSES AWAY
Terribly sad news. Larry Hagman, Star of culturally-significant TV Series Dallas and I Dream of Jeannie, passed away due to complications from Throat Cancer. The Actor who turned 81 this past September, also suffered from Cirrhosis and passed away yesterday at Medical City Dallas Hospital. He is survived by his Wife Maj and two Children, Heidi and Preston.
I spotted Hagman leaving Toronto last Summer following an appearance at Fan Expo and although I recall Fans and myself approaching him for a Photo, he appeared disinterested at the time, meeting-up with his Jeannie Co-Star Barbara Eden at the the Gate, prior to boarding their flight back to Los Angeles. I did however, manage to snap the above Photo, the last known Snap of him in the City.
I have nothing but fond Childhood memories of watching Dallas on Friday nights and Jeannie in the day during Summer Breaks. Hagman to me will be remembered as being the Villain I loved to love, forever immortalized through his fine work as J.R. Ewing.
