11 November 2016 2:13 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stars from the entertainment world have paid tribute to the TV and film actor who died on Friday from leukaemia. He was 83.

Vaughn was best known for playing the spy Napoleon Solo in the 1960s TV spy series The Man From Uncle. His co-star David McCallum, who played Illya Kuryakin in the series, told TVLine.com that he was “devastated”.

“Robert and I worked together for many years and losing him is like losing a part of me,” said McCallum. “My deepest sympathies go out to Linda and the Vaughn family.”

Director Edgar Wright was one of many from the entertainment world to take to Twitter.

“Rip Napoleon Solo!” he wrote. “The great Robert Vaughn was the coolest guy on TV when I was a kid. Superb in Bullitt, The Magnificent Seven & many more.”

Former 007 actor Roger Moore said, “Sorry to hear the news about Robert Vaughn.”

Actor, writer and comedian Stephen Fry had this to say: »

Robert Vaughn, who played the suave spy Napoleon Solo on The Man from U.N.C.L.E., had died.

Sad news. Robert Vaughn died this morning, November 11, of acute leukemia at the age of 83, the veteran actor’s manager Matthew Sullivan announced through Variety. Vaughn died in New York “surrounded by his family,” Sullivan said.

Robert Vaughn is best known in his signature role as Napoleon Solo on The Man From U.N.C.L.E., but he is also the proud gunfighter who painfully scratches his nose against the slate wall in his last battle in The Magnificent Seven.

David McCallum, who played Vaughn’s Russian spy partner on The Man From Uncle, told TVLine.com he was "utterly devastated. … Robert and I worked together for many years and losing him is like losing a part of me. My deepest sympathies go out to Linda and the Vaughn family."

Vaughn was born in New York City. »

The past year has been an especially harsh one for the entertainment industry in terms of well-known personalities who have passed away. Today's news that actor Robert Vaughn has died hits Cinema Retro especially hard and this writer in particular. He died from a battle with leukemia and was surrounded by his family in his final moments. I first met Robert in 1983 at a press conference in New York in which he and David McCallum promoted their forthcoming TV movie "Return of The Man From U.N.C.L.E." I've remained friends with them ever since and shared many an enjoyable conversation. Robert was an early supporter of Cinema Retro and contributed to numerous issues, most recently issues #33 and #34 in which he was interviewed by writer Steve Rubin about the dramatic occurrences in making the 1969 WWII film "The Bridge at Remagen »

R.I.P. Robert Vaughn (1932 – 2016)

11 November 2016 11:11 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

American actor Robert Vaughn – best known for his role as Napoleon Solo in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. – has passed away aged 83 following a battle with leukemia.

Born in New York City, Vaughn made his acting debut in 1955 with a guest role in Medic, the first of over two hundred TV roles, which included the hit 60s spy series The Man from U.N.C.L.E., 1970s detective series The Protectors, and the 80s classic The A-Team. In more recent years, he appeared in the British drama Hustle, along with the soap opera Coronation Street.

In addition to his TV work, Vaughn also appeared in a number of notable feature films, including an Academy Award-nominated turn in The Young Philadelphians, as well as The Magnificent Seven, Bullitt, The Towering Inferno, S.O.B. and Superman III. »

Robert Vaughn, ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ Star, Dies at 83

11 November 2016 9:53 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Robert Vaughn, who starred as Napoleon Solo on TV’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” from 1964-68, died Friday morning of acute leukemia, his manager Matthew Sullivan told Variety. He was 83.

Vaughn began undergoing treatment for the illness this year on the East Coast.

The James Bond-influenced “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” in which Vaughn’s Solo and David McCallum’s Illya Kuryakin battled the evil forces of T.H.R.U.S.H. around the globe (thanks to the glories of stock footage), was quite the pop-culture phenomenon in the mid-1960s, even as the show’s tone wavered from fairly serious to cartoonish and back again over its four seasons.

It spawned a spinoff, “The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.,” starring Stefanie Powers, as well as a few feature adaptations during the run of the TV series — “One Spy Too Many,” “One of Our Spies Is Missing,” and “The Karate Killers” — that starred Vaughn and McCallum. »
