'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Villain Gunnar Hansen Dead at 68

Sad news – Gunnar Hansen died on Saturday (November 8) at his home in Maine.

According to BBC, the Icelandic-born actor was 68 years old and suffered from pancreatic cancer.

Gunnar is probably best known as playing Leatherface in the 1974 horror flick The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which spawned six sequels, most recently in 2013.

His agent Mike Eisenstadt, who confirmed the death, told the publication that his character is “one of the most iconic evil figures in the history of cinema.”

Our thoughts go out to Gunnar‘s family and friends during this difficult time.
