Barbara Eden remembers her co-star Larry Hagman as "the center of so many fun, wild, shocking… and in retrospect, memorable moments that will remain in my heart forever." Eden, who starred in I Dream of Jeannie and then matched wits with J.R. Ewing in a memorable Dallas story arc, issued a statement after learning of Hagman's death.
"He was such a key element in my life for so long and even, years after I Dream of Jeannie; our paths crossed many times. Throughout various productions I had the pleasure of watching the Texas Tornado that was Larry Hagman. Amidst a whirlwind of big laughs, big smiles and unrestrained personality Larry was always, simply Larry. You couldn’t fault him for it, it was just who he was. I am so thankful that this past year I was able to spend time with him and experience yet again ‘Larry’ in all his Big Texas bravado. I can honestly say that we’ve lost not just a great actor, not just a television icon, but an element of pure Americana. Goodbye Larry, there was no one like you before and there will never be anyone like you again.”
Last year, before Hagman again fell ill, Barbara noted that they had "some kind of connection -- his timing and my timing work. We really do. The minute that camera is rolling, I have never been more comfortable working with an actor in my life."

His Dallas co-stars are also remembering the legend.
Patrick Duffy, who played Bobby Ewing, the brother of Hagman's J.R. Ewing, said, "Friday, I lost one of the greatest friends ever to grace my life. The loneliness is only what is difficult as Larry's peace and comfort is always what is important to me, now as when he was here. He was a fighter in the gentlest way, against his obstacles and for his friends. I wear his friendship with honor."
Linda Gray, who played Sue Ellen Ewing, Hagman's wife on the series, said, "Larry Hagman was my best friend for 35 years. He was the Pied Piper of life and brought joy to everyone he knew. He was creative, generous, funny, loving and talented and I will miss him enormously. He was an original and lived life to the fullest. The world was a brighter place because of Larry."
Audrey Landers, who played Affton Cooper, one of J.R.'s many extra-marital affairs on Dallas, recently reflected on how Larry made the character so memorable. "J.R. was so much bigger than life and so outrageous that people loved to hate him. You know, you couldn't really take it seriously, 'cause he was so outrageous. He played it perfectly."
Audrey Landers on what made the JR character so compelling. OC: ...played it perfectly. :16
"I think that JR was so much bigger than life and so outrageous that people loved to hate him. You know, you couldn't really take it seriously, 'cause he was so outrageous. He played it perfectly."
