no title

On Monday morning, the world got word the legendary Sam Shepard had passed over the weekend at age 73 from ALS.

In addition to being great in movies like The Right Stuff, Black Hawk Down, and The Notebook, Sam was also a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright known for brutal human drama like True West.

His work on both the page and the screen inspired countless writers and actors, many of whom became stars in their own right.

See some of the most heartfelt reactions from both Hollywood and Broadway (below):

Thank you for inspiring many generations of actors and playwrights. Rest Mr. Shepard. Well done. #samshepardA post shared by Colman Domingo (@kingofbingo) on Jul 31, 2017 at 8:22am PDT


Sadly, Sam is just one of the latest fallen stars this year. Just this morning we also lost French New Wave actress Jeanne Moreau, star of Jules et Jim.

It’s been a tough year so far.

See who else we’ve had to say goodbye to this year…
