Acclaimed actor Robert Vaughn, famed for his role in hit 1960’s television show The Man From U.N.C.L.E, died on Friday after a short battle with acute leukaemia. The actor’s manager, Matthew Sullivan, confirmed the news to Deadline over the weekend saying: “Mr. Vaughn passed away with his family around him.”

Known to many as Napoleon Solo from U.N.C.L.E, which ran from 1964-1968, Vaughn has also featured in such high-profile films as The Ten Commandments, The Magnificent Seven, Bullitt, The Towering Inferno and Superman III.

Vaughn’s U.N.C.L.E co-star David McCallum told TVLine on the news: “I just heard the news, and I’m 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.”
