Hollywood has bid farewell to yet another great actor. Miguel Ferrer, whom many will remember for playing Agent Rosenfield on “Twin Peaks” and Owen Granger on CBS’ “NCIS: Los Angeles,” died at the age of 61 on Thursday.

USA Today reported that the actor was home in Los Angeles when he died. He is said to have been battling throat cancer for some time. Ferrer is slated to posthumously appear in a number of projects, including Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” reboot and “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract.”

Shortly after it was confirmed that the actor had died, tributes from his peers began rolling in. Co-stars, fans and friends shared fond memories they shared with Ferrer and expressed their deep sadness over his loss. Many sent thoughts and prayers to his family, specifically his wife Lori Weintraub and children. The “NCIS: Los Angeles” Twitter account, as well as the “Star Trek” one, tweeted heartfelt statements about his death.

Actor George Clooney, who happens to be Ferrer’s cousin, issued a statement to Entertainment Weekly about the tragic death. Clooney wrote that Ferrer “made the world brighter and funnier,” adding that his death had a profound effect on the family. Clooney added that he and the rest of their shared family loved Ferrer very much and always will. He shared no information about funeral arrangements and no further insight into his cousin’s passing.

“Today history will mark giant changes in our world, and lost to most will be that on the same day Miguel Ferrer lost his battle to throat cancer,” Clooney’s statement to EW said. “But not lost to his family. Miguel made the world brighter and funnier and his passing is felt so deeply in our family that events of the day, (monumental events), pale in comparison. We love you Miguel. We always will.”

Other actors, including “Twin Peaks” co-star Kyle MacLachlan, Jake T. Austin, Mark Hamill, Rob Lowe and more, tweeted their condolences. Maclachlan wrote that Ferrer’s passing was “awful news,” signing his message “Coop” — the character he played opposite Ferrer on “Twin Peaks.” Austin and Lowe recalled their time with Ferrer on various sets, while Hamill looked back on his lengthy career in photos.

No further information about Ferrer’s passing is available at this time.
