Dean Stockwell, best known for his celebrated roles in the sci-fi drama “Quantum Leap” and the acclaimed 2000s reboot of “Battlestar Galactica,” died Monday at age 85. Following news of his death, Stockwell fans and co-stars alike remembered the prolific actor for the powerhouse he was.

Edward James Olmos, who starred alongside Stockwell in “Battlestar Galactica” as Admiral William Adama, fondly recalled their years working together on a tribute post on Twitter Tuesday morning.

β€œA true giant of a human has passed,” Olmos wrote. β€œI was lucky to have worked with him on Miami Vice and Battlestar. I will cherish the years we spent together. It was a gift to everyone who really knew him. “

Alex Winter of “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” also posted in Stockwell’s honor, praising the actor’s more reserved nature and revealing that he once tried to get Stockwell to participate in his documentary.

“Dean Stockwell was one of the best actors of his generation,” Winter wrote. Less ostentatious and affected than many of his more famous contemporaries, but often more nuanced and interesting. I desperately wanted it for my Showbiz Kids document, but he politely refused, he was done with the camera. BREAK.”
