Martin Landau, perhaps most known for his Oscar-winning performance as Bela Lugosi in 1994’s Ed Wood, died Saturday at age 89. Celebrities influenced by Landau’s many decades of work — his first notable role was in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 film North by Northwest and he has been acting ever since — reacted to the news, remembering his talent and kindness.
“Working with Martin Landau on Ed Wood was a joy,” Patricia Arquette tweeted. “What a talented, sweet generous actor. #RealDeal.”
Orlando Jones posted a portrait Landau drew for him. “He took me under wing,” Jones wrote. “He touched my heart. I swore to pay it forward.”
