As well as starring in Breaking Bad and El Camino, Robert was also nominated for an Oscar following his portrayal of Max Cherry in Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown and appeared in more than 100 other films.
Another Breaking Bad star paying tribute to the father-of-four was Bryan Cranston who remembered Forster's generosity:
I'm saddened today by the news that Robert Forster has passed away. A lovely man and a consummate actor. I met him on the movie Alligator (pic) 40 years ago, and then again on BB. I never forgot how kind and generous he was to a young kid just starting out in Hollywood. RIP Bob. pic.twitter.com/HtunD0Fx6g
