Veteran actor Burt Reynolds has died at the age of 82 from a heart attack.

Reynolds’ manager Erik Kritzer told the Hollywood Reporter that the actor went into cardiac arrest and died at Jupiter Medical in Florida on Thursday morning, surrounded by his family.

The actor was best known for his roles in 1972’s Deliverance, 1977’s Smokey and the Bandit, and 1997’s Boogie Nights – the last of which earned him an Oscar nomination. He was also filming Quentin Tarantino’s new movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood alongside Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio at the time of his death.
