Gerard Butler is sending his condolences to the family of the late Michael Nyqvist, who he recently worked with on the upcoming movie Hunter Killer.

The 47-year-old actor took to social media to share a video tribute to the actor, who died from lung cancer on Tuesday (June 27).

“Hi there. I’m really compelled to do this, but Michael Nyqvist, Swedish actor, you probably know him from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, who I made a movie with last year called Hunter Killer, it hasn’t come out yet… I just found out that he passed today,” Gerry says in the clip.

“It feels important to send my condolences because of all the movies I’ve made, he was right up there,” Gerard added. “He’s one of my favorites, if not my favorite, in terms of somebody who just had such incredible talent and childlike qualities and playfulness. But more than anything, just incredible humility and warmth and this cheeky kind of glint in his eyes.”

“Sending my condolences to Michael Nyqvist and his family. Incredibly talented and an extraordinary human being. My heart is broken,” he wrote in the caption of the video.
