    RIP David Gulpilil

    David Gulpilil Ridjimiraril Dalaithngu has died at age 68 after a four-year battle with lung cancer.

    The Crocodile Dundee star was known as a beloved indigenous Australian actor and his legacy was honored in a statement by Premier of South Australia Hon Steven Marshall on Monday.

    "It is with great sadness that I share with the people of South Australia the passing of an iconic, once-in-a-generation artist who shaped the history of Australian film and Aboriginal representation on screen," Marshall wrote.

    "An actor, dancer, singer, and painter, he was also one of the greatest artists Australia has ever seen," he said.

    ------------------------------

    David will be most remembered for starring alongside Paul Hogan in Crocodile Dundee, but he also starred in box office hits 'Australia' and 'Rabit Proof Fence' among other films. Over the years, he worked closely with Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Geoffrey Rush, William Hurt, and Sam Neill.


    ----Tribute from Hugh Jackman

    'I join all Australians, and the world over, in mourning the loss of David Gulpilil Ridjimiraril Dalaithngu,' the X-Men star wrote.

    'One of the great privileges of my life was to work with David on the movie Australia.

    'His contribution to film is immeasurable. From his cheeky laugh, to that mischievous glint in his eye and effortless ease in front of the camera… His humanity is irreplaceable.'

    Rabbit proof fence is an important and powerful film. Thanks for mentioning the death of one of the actors in that film.
