American actor Bill Paxton has died.  A family spokesman says the 61 year old actor died from complications due to surgery.

At the time of his death, Paxton was starring in the CBS television series “Training Day,” a remake of the 2001 hit motion picture. 

A native of Texas, Paxton got his start in the 1970s working in the art department on Roger Corman movies.

By the 1980s and 90s he had become a favourite of Canadian director James Cameron, and had roles in “The Terminator,” “Weird Science,” “Aliens,” “Apollo 13,” “Twister” and “Titanic.”

A statement released by his family calls him an “adored husband and father,” and describes Paxton as “a beloved and prolific actor and filmmaker” whose “illustrious career” spanned four decades.
