Rod Taylor best known for his performance in film classics such as, “The Birds” and ‘The Time Machine,” passed away on January 7, 2015.

Taylor died at the age of 84 of natural causes. Although Taylor was best known for his portrayal as the leading man in Alfred Hitchcock’s, “The Birds,” and for the science fiction classic, “The Time Machine,” Taylor had over ninety film and television appearances on his filmography, and his career spanned over six decades.

Taylor was known for his rugged good looks, but anyone who has seen his films knows that he was able to captivate an audience. He was an actor that took on such a large variety of roles, and worked in the industry his whole life. His last film appearance took place in 2009, when he had a role in Quentin Tarantino’s war film, “Inglourious Basterds.” He was also known for being the voice of Pongo in the classic Disney animated film, “101 Dalmatians.”

Tippi Herden, his co star and the leading role in “The Birds,” had these words to say about the actor’s passing, “There are so many incredible feelings I have for him. Rod was a great pal to me and a real strength, we were very, very good friends. He was one of the most fun people I have ever met, thoughtful and classy, there was everything good in that man.”

Although Taylor did not have too many blockbuster hits at the box office, he was a film icon and a legend who’s work will impact generations to come.
