HUGH Keays-Byrne, who played the Mad Max Fury Road character Immortan Joe, has died at 73-years-old.
Filmmaker Ted Geoghegan shared news of Hugh Keays-Byrne's passing with fans on Wednesday.
"Hugh Keays-Byrne, an unsung hero of Aussie cinema, has passed away at age 73. I'm continually floored that he played Toecutter, the central antagonist of 1979's MAD MAX *and* Immortan Joe, the central antagonist 2015's MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. Thanks for all the entertainment, sir.
"By all accounts, Hugh Keays-Byrne, who trained at the Royal Shakespeare Company, was an absolutely wonderful human who fought very hard for environmental and humanitarian issues. This photo of him from earlier this year says it all. You will ride eternal, shiny and chrome."
It has not yet been confirmed how the star died.
