Mr Landau, who shot to fame by playing a homosexual henchman in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 classic North by Northwest, died Saturday of “unexpected complications”, his publicist confirmed.
The actor shot to fame as Rollin Hand in the ‘Mission Impossible’ TV series. A role that got him repeatedly nominated for Emmys and helped him nab the Best Male TV Star Golden Globe in 1968.
The silver screen star said: “Everything that has happened to me is of value to me. As painful as certain things are, and have been, and were, there’s a use for those things in my life and in my work.
“You can have immediate regrets, but if you look at stuff and say, ‘Things happen for a reason’, there’s a fatalistic thing about it. Something will happen that will justify it in some way.”
