The veteran actor, who had recently returned to the revived show, died on 23 November of complications related to throat cancer. He was 81.

“He’ll be spread around the world, basically,” said his agent John Castonia. “His son travels a great deal, and I know it’ll give Larry great pleasure.”

Hagman's long-time manager and friend Gene Yusem added that there are also plans to scatter ashes at the Ewing ranch.

“It sounds like it will happen and I wouldn't be surprised if it does. Larry had such a great sense of humour, he would have loved it,” he said.

Filming of the series has now resumed after taking a break as a mark of respect to the actor, who played Texas oil baron J.R. Ewing.

Hagman was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver in 1992, which then developed into a cancerous tumour. He later had a transplant, which saved his life, and gave up drinking and smoking. [Daily Mail]

Filming of an episode of 'Countdown' was halted because of a contestant's unruly chest hair. “Having been instructed to either wear a shirt or V-neck, I opted for the latter - which was funny because on set there was a complaint that I was showing too much flesh and that my chest hair might offend some people,” said 24-year-old contestant Duncan Conway. “I had to have my T-shirt taped so it held up higher.” [Kirkintilloch Herald]
