His family revealed he died on Wednesday from complications relating to Parkinson’s disease.

They said: “It came as no surprise that James continued to receive fan mail from all over the world almost weekly.”

His agent Linda McAlister added in a statement: “He loved (acting). He wasn’t trying to be a big star, he loved his characters because he was so understated. You didn’t realize the impact he made.”

She added to NBC News: “He wasn’t trying to chew up the scenery. He was just adding warmth and humour and moving the story along.”
