It is with the deepest sadness we announce Henry Silva‘s death at the age of 94. The Ocean’s 11 and The Manchurian Candidate actor passed away in September 2022.

According to Deana Martin’s tweet, Silva was the last surviving star of the original Ocean 11 movies. Her Tweet reads, “Our hearts are broken at the loss of our dear friend Henry Silva, one of the nicest, kindest, and most talented men I’ve had the pleasure of calling my friend.

“He was the last surviving star of the original Ocean 11 Movie. We love you, Henry, you will be missed.” After the devastating news went viral, Silva’s fans did not take much time to pay the deepest condolence over his death and started to tweet on the Internet.

Henry Silva died at the age of 94.

His notable film appearances include Ocean’s 11 (1960), Johnny Cool (1963), The Manchurian Candidate (1962), Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999), and Sharky’s Machine (1981).

Other TV appearances include featured roles on episodes of The Untouchables, The Outer Limits television series, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Mission Impossible, Rod Serling’s Night Gallery, and Boris Karloff‘s suspense series Thriller.

In 1965, an Italian film producer made Henry an offer to star as a hero for a change and Henry moved his family overseas. His turning-point picture was a Spaghetti Western, The Hills Run Red, which made him a hot box-office commodity in Italy, Germany, Spain, and France.

Between 1966 and 1977 Silva starred in at least 25 movies. His best remembered of these are Il Boss (1973), Manhunt (1972), and Almost Human (1974).
