Esteemed character actor Fred Ward has passed away at the age of 79. Born in San Diego, Ward's tough-guy persona in many on-screen roles like Earl Basset from Tremors drew from real-life experience in the United States Air Force, in the ring as a boxer, in Alaska as a lumberjack, and the kitchen as a short-order cook.

His work in the film industry began in Rome during his 20s, where he dubbed Italian films into English and acted in projects by director Roberto Rossellini, eventually studying at the Herbert Berghof Studio.

Upon returning to the United States, Ward got his first significant role in Don Siegel's Escape from Alcatraz as a prison escapee alongside Clint Eastwood.

He would star in other Hollywood films like Southern Comfort, Timerider: The Adventure of Lyle Swann, and as real-life astronaut Gus Grissom in The Right Stuff.
