American film and television actor James Garner died of natural causes in Los Angeles at the age of 86.

Garner is survived by his wife, Lois Clarke, and two children, Gigi and Kimberly. The latter is Clarke's daughter from her first marriage.

Celebrities took to their Twitter accounts to pay tribute to the actor.

The Notebook star had received the Screen Actors Guild's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005.

"James Garner was the definition of the smooth, dashing leading man, but his talents were so much more than skin deep. He was a hard worker who dedicated himself wholly to whatever he set out to accomplish, whether it was serving his country or performing for the camera," SAG-AFTRA president Ken Howard said in a statement.
