Bill Paxton, actor known for roles in 'Twister' and 'Aliens,' dead at 61 due to complications from surgery, family says

Actor Bill Paxton, who starred in some of the biggest blockbusters of the ‘80s and ‘90s and kicked off a new TV series just weeks ago, has died, according to a family statement. He was 61.

His family said the veteran actor died on Saturday from complications from surgery.

“It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery,” the statement to media said.

TMZ first reported his death.

Paxton had nearly 100 acting credits to his name. After getting started in the ‘70s, he scored minor and supporting roles in ‘80s classics including “The Terminator,” “Aliens” and “Weird Science.”
His profile rose in the ‘90s, when he took the lead in the disaster hit “Twister” and played a central treasure hunter in “Titanic,” which was the highest grossing film of all time for more than a decade. Paxton also appeared in “Apollo 13,” “Trues Lies” and “Tombstone.”

He also dabbled in directing, helming the films “Frailty” and “The Greatest Game Ever Played.”

In the later part of his career, Paxton focused on celebrated television roles, starring in the HBO series “Big Love” and earning an Emmy nomination for his performance in the History channel miniseries “Hatfields and McCoys.”

Paxton is a star of the CBS cop drama “Training Day,” which premiered at the start of February.
