Hillerman was 84 and died at his home in Houston – and the cause of death has yet to be determined.
Zoomers will remember Hillerman playing stuffy Jonathan Higgins to Tom Selleck’s free-wheeling private detective Thomas Magnum – in the hit 1980s series – which was set in Hawaii.
His film credits include The Last Picture Show and High Plains Drifter.
