Shortly before his death, participated in a pre-recorded chat on the Kelly Clarkson Show, alongside castmates Keanu Reeves and Ian McShane, to discuss the blockbuster.

Discussing the role, he said: ‘For the first time, we see Ian’s character – where it gets personal for him. His trajectory throughout the rest of the film is about loyalty and friendship and, for the first time, revenge.

‘When I watched the film, I was struck by… every one of these films looks great, but how incredibly beautiful… Especially a film that moves so much, it has so much almost relentless action, it’s just stunningly gorgeous to watch.

‘Family’s such a huge theme in this particular film, more than any others – literal family, but also, you see with the three of us, that it’s not just the family you’re born into, but the family you’ve created, and how much we really are family.’
