Actor Robert Forster died in Los Angeles at the age of 78. He was nominated for an Oscar award as well for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown.
Forster was born in Rochester, a state in New York. He died this Friday after suffering from brain cancer. According to Kathie Berlin, a publicist, he was surrounded by his family, including his wife and four children.
His death happened the same day when El Camino, a movie, was broadcast on Netflix. The film was based on the TV series “breaking bad,” and the actor had a role in it.
Besides, he also played roles in David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive and Twin Peaks. But his best-known role is his appearance in Jackie Brown.
Many people posted condolences for Forster on social media. Bryan Cranston said that he was one of the kindest and generous man. He also called him a consummate actor in his tweet. Forster and Cranston worked together in the 1980 film “Alligator” and later on in a TV show “breaking bad.”
Forster’s co-star from Jackie Brown, Samuel L. Jackson, also tweeted about him and said that he was indeed a class actor.
In his down days, Forster still considered himself a lucky being. He said that one learns to take whatever jobs are available and make the best out of it. He said that anybody in any walk of life if they are able to figure it out, has a better finish.
Those who are not able to stand a picture that is not paying much do not have a better end. In 2011 on IndieWire, he told that attitude is everything.
