GUNNER HANSEN 1947-2015
Sad news to wake up to today, as we learn of the passing of horror icon Gunner Hansen. Hansen gained notoriety starring in Tobe Hooper’s horror masterpiece The Texas Chainsaw Massacre as the demented, giant man-child Leatherface. His role as one of cinema’s most recognizable horror characters paved the way for a prolific career in horror movies, ironically ending with a part as one of the Sawyer family in the 2013 Texas Chainsaw 3D. Hansen succumbed to cancer at the age of 68. His legacy will never be forgotten.
