Harry Dean Stanton, Legendary Space Trucker, Returns to the Stars
The last year or so has taken many great people from us, and it's with a heavy heart that we now say goodbye to a long standing Hollywood stalwart. Harry Dean Stanton passed at the age of 91, and was probably best known to the nerd community as blue collar space mechanic, Brett, in Alien.
The seminal space horror was not his only step into sci-fi however, with appearances in Escape From New York, Repo Man and even The Avengers to his name. While sci-fi was never Harry's mainstay, he was a great contributor to the genre and will be sadly missed by nerds everywhere.
