The Walking Dead's Scott Wilson Passes Away

Scott Wilson, who played Hershel Greene on the AMC series The Walking Dead, has died aged 76.

His representative Dominic Mancini told the website TMZ that he passed away in Los Angeles due to complications from leukaemia - and described him as a "national treasure".

Wilson started his career back in 1967 with a role in the film "In the Heat of the Night" and he remained a very busy working actor for the next 50 years.

Compatible with iOS and Android devices, The Walking Dead: Our World is powered by Google Maps, enabling the game map to showcase the action anywhere players go, including world-famous landmarks and buildings such as the Statue of Liberty, the London Eye and Burj Khalifa. He also received a Golden Globe nomination in 1981 for his supporting role in the drama The Ninth Configuration. Hershel was killed off in the show's fourth season by the Governor.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Scott Wilson's family and friends at this hard time and as soon as any further updates on the situation roll in, we'll be sure to let you know. Rest in paradise, Scott.

Wilson played Hershel Greene in 32 episodes of AMC's The Walking Dead.

"The Walking Dead" Season 9 is simultaneously highly anticipated and dreaded for several reasons.

Scott was married for almost four decades to Heavenly Wilson.

Colleagues and fans paid tribute to Wilson, who starred in around 30 episodes of the The Walking Dead in seasons two, three and four.

Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman recalled the first time he saw Lincoln with Steven Yeun on set, and the impact that it had on him: "There was a moment where I saw Andrew Lincoln talking to Steven Yeun for the first time. We love you!" the official TWD Twitter feed said. "Scott will be missed".

Wilson was also active in the Screen Actors Guild and strongly opposed the attempts to merge SAG with AFTRA. When we lost Hershel on the show it was a week after my own father passed away and when Scott came on Talking Dead he said so many kind and wonderful things to me afterwards that brought me great comfort.
