James Redford Dead - Robert Redford's Son Dies at 58

James Redford has sadly died.

The son of Robert Redford, who followed in his footsteps as a filmmaker and activist in his own right, passed away at his home on Friday (October 16) in Marin County, Calif. at the age of 58, his wife Kyle confirmed on Twitter.

Jamie died today. We’re heartbroken. He lived a beautiful, impactful life & was loved by many. He will be deeply missed. As his wife of 32 [years], I’m most grateful for the two spectacular children we raised together. I don’t know what we would’ve done [without] them over the past 2 [years],” she wrote.

She later confirmed in an interview with The Salt Lake Tribune that he died due to bile-duct cancer in his liver, discovered last November while awaiting a transplant.

James was known mostly for documentary work, including The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia and Toxic Hot Seat. His most recent film, Playing for Keeps, had its premiere this month at the Mill Valley Film Festival, and explored the health benefits of play time for children and adults.

Our thoughts are with James Redford‘s loved ones at this difficult time.

We have sadly lost all of these stars in 2020.
