Emmy-nominated actor Bill Paxton has died due to complications from surgery. He was 61.

Paxton appeared in films such as Twister, Titanic and Apollo 13. While on television he was known for HBO’s Big Love, Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. and the miniseries Hatfields and McCoys. Paxton’s latest series Training Day had recently premiered on CBS.

While it is unclear what type of surgery he was having, Paxton’s family released a statement confirming his passing.

“It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery. A loving husband and father, Bill began his career in Hollywood working on films in the art department and went on to have an illustrious career spanning four decades as a beloved and prolific actor and filmmaker. Bill’s passion for the arts was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth and tireless energy were undeniable. We ask to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their adored husband and father.”

Paxton is survived by his wife Louise Newbury and their two children.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.
