Henry Silva reportedly died Wednesday in Los Angeles at the age of 95.

The Hollywood star spent more than 50 years on the screen and racked up 130 film credits, including Johnny Cool, Ocean’s Eleven and The Manchurian Candidate.

Henry played the character of the Communist spy Chunjin opposite Frank Sinatra in John Frankenheimer’s 1962 thriller The Manchurian Candidate.

American singer and actress Deana Martin took to Twitter on Friday to pay tribute to the late actor – and shared that she was “heartbroken” at the loss of her “dear friend”.

“Our hearts are broken at the loss of our dear friend Henry Silva, one of the kindest, kindest and most talented men I have had the pleasure to call my friend.

“He was the last surviving star of the original Ocean’s 11 move. We love you Henry you will be missed,” she wrote in the heartfelt tweet.

Fans also paid their respects on social media, calling him “one of the most versatile actors in film and television.”

Henry, who is believed to have died peacefully, was seen using a room frame before his death.

He has been married three times throughout his life and is survived by his sons Scott and Michael.
