The actor passed away on Saturday (July 15) in Los Angeles following "unexpected complications" after a hospital visit.

"We are overcome with sadness to report the death of iconic actor Martin Landau", a statement said.

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.

His performance as Rollin Hand on Mission Impossible earned him a Golden Globe Award and nominations for three Emmy Awards. The comeback role led to Landau's first Oscar nomination for best supporting actor, though he lost to Kevin Kline's knockout comic turn in A Fish Called Wanda.

Orlando Jones posted a portrait Landau drew for him.

His other acting credits include Ready to Rumble, Edtv, The X-Files: Fight the Future, Rounders, The Majestic, Mysteria, City Hall, and the made-for-TV Anna Nicole biopic.

For years, Landau was a director of the Actors Studio's West Coast branch, where Jack Nicholson and Harry Dean Stanton were among his earliest students.

Martin Landau's influence in the film industry is vast, inspiring countless actors and directors.

On the enormously successful "Mission: Impossible", Landau and Bain played well off one another and with the rest of the regular ensemble, which included Peter Graves. "I would've probably died playing that role".

Landau got his start as a newspaper cartoonist at the New York Daily News, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Opportunity knocked in 1977 with a leading role in the British sci-fi series Space: 1999, but Landau found himself again out of steady work when the series was abruptly canceled two years later.

Normality for Landau meant he never became a Hollywood A-lister, but he saw a benefit in not being a highly sought-after actor.

He won his first Oscar nomination for his role in Francis Ford Coppola's 1988 film Tucker: The Man And His Dream. He won an Oscar for his role as Bela Lugosi.

Landau, who was born in Brooklyn, is survived by two daughters from his marriage with "Mission: Impossible" co-star Barbara Bain.

Landau and Bain were married from 1957 to 1993.
