The lovable secret agent John Steed was a hugely popular TV character back in the 60's and was easily recognizable with his trademark bowler hat and umbrella always handy.
Patrick also had a role in the James Bond flick A View To A Kill alongside Roger Moore, who had this to say about the actor's passing:
"So very sad to hear Pat Macnee has left us. We were mates from 1950s and I have so many happy memories of working with him. A true gent."
Patrick began acting the young age of 11 and worked tirelessly until eventually stepping away from the spotlight in the early 2000's.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Patrick's family at this incredibly difficult time.
