This makes me so sad! Sam Shepard who is in so many of my favorite movies (and TV shows) has passed away at the age of 73.
He wasn’t just an actor, he was an Pulitzer Prize winning playwright. Sam had been battling ALS, and died peacefully in his Kentucky home surrounded by his children and sisters, according to TMZ.
He was known for his roles in “Black Hawk Down”, “The Notebook”, “Swordfish” and the Netflix original series, “Bloodline”. New York Magazine named him the greatest American playwright of this generation.
