Ghostbusters Star Harold Ramis Dies Aged 69.

Ghostbusters Star Harold Ramis Dies Aged 69.

Actor and director Harold Ramis, best known for the films Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day, has died aged 69.

He died of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that involves swelling of the blood vessels, his agent told the BBC.

The star found fame as bespectacled ghost-hunter Egon Spengler in the Ghostbusters franchise in 1984.

But he was also a talented writer and director, whose credits included Caddyshack and Animal House.

"His creativity, compassion, intelligence, humour and spirit will be missed by all who knew and loved him," said his family in a statement.

The star had reportedly been quiet about his illness, which dated back to 2010.
'The real deal'

But several friends are said to have visited him recently, including Bill Murray from whom he'd been estranged for years, the Chicago Tribune said.

Ramis' death prompted an outpouring of tributes on Twitter.

Billy Crystal, who starred in the director's mobster comedies Analyze This and Analyze That, wrote: "Sad to hear my friend Harold Ramis passed away.

"A brilliant, funny actor and director. A wonderful husband and dad. Big loss to us all."

Iron Man director Jon Favreau added: "No, no, not Harold Ramis. Worked for him years ago. He was the real deal. Growing up, his work changed my life. He will be missed."

How sad to see him die before he got to do Ghostbusters 3. He will surely be missed, he was a great talent.

P.S-Fuck Bill Murray for not allowing GB3 to happen.

Groundhog Day was one of my favorite comedies. Saddened to hear of the death. RIP
