Bill Paxton, who died on Saturday at the age of 61, is being remembered by friends and former co-stars.

The Emmy-nominated actor, who was currently starring in CBS’ adaptation of Training Day, died due to complications from an unspecified surgery. Justin Cornwell and Julie Benz, who respectively play his partner and girlfriend on the freshman drama, both took to social media to express their grief over the loss of a “sweet friend.”

Bill Paxton was a big-hearted, thoughtful and honorable person. He always had a smile on his face and could entertain any room with his wonderful stories of his many amazing years in Hollywood. Bill was extremely supportive of other actors, and the filmmaking process — a delight to work with. It was a wonderful time to be on set with him for five years. My heart breaks for his family.
