Bill Paxton Expressed Worry Over the Surgery That Led to His Death
Actor Bill Paxton, who died unexpectedly Saturday, revealed in an email that he was worried about the surgery that would ultimately lead to his sudden death.
DailyMail.com reports Paxton received well wishes from his "Edge of Tomorrow" director Doug Liman prior to heart surgery, and while Liman described him as "optimistic," he also says the actor was "worried."
Still, Paxton closed his last email to Liman with, "Thanks for the good wishes. It will help me face this ordeal."
He was even looking ahead to a possible "Edge of Tomorrow" sequel, reassuring Liman, "Don't worry 'Sgt Farell' will be ready to report for duty," referring to his character from the 2014 action flick.
Paxton, a familiar face from his roles in "Titanic" (1997) and on five seasons of HBO's "Big Love," among many other projects, died of a stroke following complications from the surgery.
He is mourned by many in Hollywood, and his shocking passing will almost certainly be mentioned on Sunday evening's Oscars broadcast.
