Gunnar Hansen who played Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s iconic splatterpunk film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) has died at age 68. Inspired by serial killer Ed Gein, Leatherface wore a mask of human skin.
The Icelandic-born actor was an unknown graduate student in Texas when director Tobe Hooper cast him in the low-budget horror film, which became a cult hit and spawned three sequels, two remakes and a prequel.
Hansen died Saturday evening of pancreatic cancer at his home in Northeast Harbor, Maine, according to his agent, Mike Eisenstadt, who described Hansen’s “Chainsaw” character as “one of the most iconic evil figures in the history of cinema.”
