Scott Wilson Dead at 76: 'Walking Dead' Actor Dies

Norman Reedus and Scott Wilson attend The Walking Dead 100th Episode Premiere and Party

"All I can say now is that Scott Wilson profoundly impacted my life".

The Walking Dead star Scott Wilson has passed away.

His break-out roles came almost 50 years ago, when he acted in the role of murder suspect Harvey Oberst in 1967's "In the Heat of the Night", which won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, Variety reported.

But for a younger generation Scott will forever be known as Hershel Greene, the widowed farmer who was in the show from 2011 until 2014. It's unclear if he had already shot his scenes for season 9 of TWD, but we imagine AMC will release an official statement shortly and shed some light on what's going on.

Actor Titus Welliver, whom Wilson starred alongside on Amazon Studios' police procedural Bosch, tweeted a short but heartfelt tribute to his co-star.

Wilson had been traveling recently on the comic con circuit around the country this past year, so his death came as a shock to fans, Comicbook.com reported.

The news agency quoted Istanbul prosecutors as saying that an investigation launched on Tuesday had been widened since. The official did not provide details on how the body had been carried out or whether it had been found.

Wilson was born in Atlanta in on March 29, 1942. He had the ability to make me smile on the darkest of days.

"I really will miss him and the gentle, compassionate eyes that gave Hershel so much soul", he wrote. In Cold Blood director Richard Brooks selected Wilson for the role in part because he was unknown at the time.

Outgoing showrunner and new Chief Creative Officer of The Walking Dead TV universe Scott Gimple admitted that the writers had been aware that Lincoln's exit "was a possibility that we talked about, it wasn't a certainty".

Wilson played a key role in 1974's The Great Gatsby in which his character killed Jay Gatsby (Robert Redford) while at his mansion swimming pool, then turned the gun on himself. In 1980, Wilson's role in The Ninth Configuration earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor. "We love you!" the show said on Twitter.

"Scott Wilson was simply the finest actor and more importantly the finest and most decent man I ever knew".

Scott was married for almost four decades to Heavenly Wilson.
