Scott Wilson - All The Stars We Lost In 2018

Scott Wilson

Scott Wilson has died at the age of 78.

Veteran actor Scott Wilson, best known to TV audiences as Hershel Greene on The Walking Dead, died Saturday. He had key roles in two 1967 films, the Academy Award-winning "In The Heat of the Night" and the film adaptation of the Truman Capote book, In Cold Blood.

Wilson joined AMC's zombie series in Season 2, with his character being killed off in Season 4.

But less than an hour before news of his death was made public, showrunner Angela Kang announced that the character of Hershel Greene would be making a reappearance during the forthcoming season nine.

Tributes to the actor have began to flood in across social media, including from his Bosch co-star Titus Welliver. "Scott will be missed".

The official Twitter page for The Walking Dead confirmed the news of his death today.

At a small makeshift Rohingya refugee camp in New Delhi , home to about 40 families, there was alarm over Thursday's deportation. An official said that Myanmar diplomats were given consular access, and that the identity of the immigrants were confirmed.

Wilson was born on March 29, 1942 in Thomasville, Georgia.

Lincoln gave the audience some insight into his final day on set: "My last day was incredible, but on the way to it being a very moving farewell, I pulled down the set on top of the A-cameraman, Deke".

"I know you looked up to him and admired him..." one fan wrote.

His gripping performance earned him a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actor in a movie, though he lost to Timothy Hutton for Ordinary People. According to ComicBook.com, the actor was scheduled to appear at New York Comic-Con, held from October 4 to Oct 7. Adding that it feels "like a new show", Reedus said fans can expect the tone of Season 9 to feel like "a really honest, heartfelt Western that's scary, and the threats are different".

Scott was married for almost four decades to Heavenly Wilson.
