It’s a sad day for Hollywood.
Actor James Garner, who rose to fame in 1950’s western TV series Maverick, died at home in Brentwood, Los Angeles on Saturday. He was 86 years old.
Though Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez confirmed the star had died of natural causes, Garner previously suffered a stroke in 2008.
After his breakout role in Maverick, Garner went on to star in 70’s TV drama The Rockford Files and more recently, he played Sandra Bullock’s father in 2002 film The Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood and Duke in 2004 romantic drama The Notebook.
The leading man leaves his wife of more than 50 years, Lois Fleishman Clarke, a daughter, author Gigi, and a stepdaughter, Kimberly.
