(Washington) – The prolific American actor Eli Wallach, known by many for his role in the western “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” as part of a career spanning six decades, has died at the age of 98. Wallach´s death was confirmed by his daughter Katherine. The cause of death was not given.
Another big movie that the character actor Wallach starred in was the 1960s western “The Magnificent Seven,” in which he played a Mexican bandit. Wallach appeared in more than 80 films but was never nominated for an Oscar. However, in 2010 the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences gave him an honorary one.
Wallach continued to work well into his 90s. He again appeared alongside Eastwood in the 2003 dramatic thriller “Mystic River” and in 2010 played in both Roman Polanski´s “The Ghost Writer” and Oliver Stone´s “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.” Wallach leaves behind his wife Anne and three children.
