Sid Haig, the actor best-known as as the iconic character Captain Spaulding in Rob Zombie’s movies, has passed away at the age of 80.

Haig died on Saturday, September 21, according to a post shared by his wife Susan L. Oberg via her Instagram:

“On Saturday, September 21, 2019, my light, my heart, my true love, my King, the other half of my soul, Sidney, passed from this realm on to the next,” reads the statement.

“He has returned to the Universe, a shining star in her heavens. He was my angel, my husband, my best friend and always will be. He adored his family, his friends and his fans. This came as a shock to all of us.

“We, as a family, are asking that our privacy and time to mourn be respected.

“Goodnight, my love. We will find each other again, next time. I love you.”

Haig was admitted to hospital after a “nasty spill” a week ago but suffered serious breathing complications afterwards. The actor was then transferred to the ICU but despite reports his condition improving, his health got worse.

The scary movie icon’s final Rob Zombie movie "3 From Hell" just recently premiered in theaters.
