Larry Hagman is fondly remembered as playing the bumbling astronaut, Major Anthony "Tony" Nelson, in the 1960s sitcom I Dream of Jeannie. He had supporting roles in numerous films, including Superman, Nixon and Primary Colors. But he is best known for playing the king of all soap villains: the wicked, scheming, JR Ewing on the hit prime time soap Dallas. The subject of the biggest cliff-hanger ever, thirty million viewers from fifty-seven countries watched the episode where JR Ewing was shot, making Larry Hagman one of the biggest soap stars in the world.
With a larger-than-life, fun-loving personality, Larry was a hippy at heart, belying the conservative facade of his oil baron character in Dallas. However, he was also a big drinker and was known to finish off five bottles of champagne a day during his Dallas heyday. This eventually resulted in severe liver damage and a life-saving liver transplant operation. Ever the optimist, Larry continued performing and played a vital role in the Dallas reboot in 2012 but died during filming the second season from complications resulting from throat cancer. We'll explore what drove Larry to continue performing into his early 80s and what really led to his death in November 2012.
