  • Easy Rider star Peter Fonda dies

Easy Rider, which appeared in 1969, directed by and starring the late Dennis Hopper, was the film, precisely attuned to youthful rebellion and the zeitgeist, which turned Fonda into an edgy, charismatic hero of the counterculture.

This is how many remembered the Oscar-nominated USA actor in their social media tributes after his death at the age of 79.

A family statement said he died at his home in Los Angeles on Friday of respiratory failure from lung cancer.

Peter was the son of iconic film and stage actor Henry Fonda, and the younger brother of two-time Academy Award winning actress Jane Fonda.

Biel's heartfelt message comes after stars and directors, including Peter's sister Jane Fonda, shared a flood of tributes to the late actor.

Leading Hollywood figures described him as a "beautiful soul" who "helped changed cinema". I have had handsome alone time with him these last few days. In a statement, the Fonda family called Peter a "sweet and gracious man" with an "indomitable spirit and love of life".

The "Easy Rider" star was recently hospitalised with an unknown illness.

In the summer of 1965, Fonda showed up at a Beatles house party on Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles, according to The Los Angeles Times. "The talker of the family", she said.

After years of films of varying success, Fonda received high-profile critical recognition and universal praise for his performance in Ulee's Gold (1997). "He went out laughing".

Fonda later said in interviews he did not know his mother's death had been due to suicide until years later.
