Italian actor and filmmaker Bud Spencer died on Monday at age 86, national media reported.
“My father died peacefully at 18:15 and did not suffer from pain, he had all of us next to him and his last words were ‘Thank you’,” his son and film producer Giuseppe Pedersoli said in a note to media. Pedersoli could not be immediately reached for additional comment.
A post on his official Facebook page read, “With our deepest regrets, we have to tell you that Bud is flying to his next journey”.
Spencer was known to the public as the “big friendly giant” of the screen due to his height and weight.
He played in action and comedy films in the 1970s and 1980s, mostly working at the side of his friend Terence Hill.
May his gentle soul rest in peace…
