‘Thank you, Mark, for all you brought to our theater, and to theaters and audiences across the world. We will miss you.’

Mark’s most notable role was in the 1986 Australian outback film, alongside Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski.

His other stand-out roles include Union Bob in Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle and, more recently, as Mr. Mooney on Lifetime-turned-Netflix’s You.

Tributes have been pouring in for the star on social media, with actress Rosanna Arquette penning: ‘I’m so deeply sad for his family and for his fans. He was a wonderful actor and a very good and kind man.
