Sam Shepard: US actor and playwright dies aged 73
    2017-August-2  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

美国演员兼编剧山姆·夏普德逝世

U.S. actor and playwright Sam Shepard has died at the age of 73.

Shepard wrote more than 40 plays and won the Pulitzer Prize for drama for “Buried Child” in 1979.

He went on to be nominated for the best supporting actor Oscar for 1983’s “The Right Stuff” and starred in films like “Black Hawk Down” as well as co-writing 1984’s “Paris, Texas.”

He died at home in Kentucky on Thursday, his family have confirmed.

Shepard’s death came after he experienced complications from motor neurone disease*, also known as ALS.

His first major acting role was in Terrence Malik’s “Days of Heaven” in 1978, in which he starred alongside Richard Gere.

Other film credits include “Steel Magnolias,” “The Pelican Brief” and “The Accidental Husband.”

More recently, he was seen as Robert Rayburn in two series of Netflix thriller “Bloodline.” Shepard also appears in psychological thriller “Never Here,” which had its premiere last month.

He was nominated for two other Pulitzers, for Broadway plays “Fool for Love” and “True West.” He was also nominated for two Tony Awards.

His final play was “A Particle of Dread,” which was first performed in Derry/Londonderry in 2013 as part of its year as UK City of Culture.

And he wrote the screenplay for Robert Altman’s big screen adaptation of his play “Fool for Love.” His novel, “The One Inside,” was published earlier this year.

A spokesman said Shepard’s family were with him when he died. He leaves children Jesse, Hannah and Walker Shepard and sisters Sandy and Roxanne Rogers.

Tributes have been paid from the worlds of film, theater and TV.
