Actor Patrick Duffy paid tribute to his late Dallas co-star Larry Hagman today. Hagman died from complications related to cancer on Friday, November 23 at aged 81. Duffy co-starred with the actor in the series DALLAS.

"Friday I lost one of the greatest friends ever to grace my life," said Duffy in a statement. "The loneliness is only what is difficult, as Larry's peace and comfort is always what is important to me, now as when he was here."

He added, "He was a fighter in the gentlest way, against his obstacles and for his friends. I wear his friendship with honor."

The long-running soap opera that revolves around the Ewings, a wealthy Texas family in the oil and cattle-ranching industries. The show was famous for its cliffhangers, including the "Who shot J. R.?" mystery, and the "Dream Season", in which the entirety of the ninth season was revealed to have been a dream of one of the characters.

Throughout the series, Larry Hagman starred as greedy, scheming oil baron J. R. Ewing. The show also starred stage/screen actress Barbara Bel Geddes as family matriarch Miss Ellie, and movie Western actor Jim Davis as Ewing patriarch Jock, his last role before his death in 1981. The series won four Emmy Awards, including a 1980 Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series win for Bel Geddes.
