Linda Gray: I miss Larry every day

Linda Gray misses Larry Hagman every day.

The 'Dallas' actor lost his battle with cancer at the age of 81 in November and Linda - who has played his character JR Ewing's wife Sue Ellen since the late 1970s - is still saddened by her close friend's death.

She told People magazine: "Every day I miss him but I had a little chat with him this morning, it made me feel better."

Linda went to see Larry on several occasions in the last few weeks of his life when he was in the Medical City Dallas Hospital in Dallas.

The 72-year-old actress' co-star knew he didn't have long to go when he spoke with her.

She revealed: "He said, 'I've got two weeks to live!' We went, 'What are you talking about? Come on, we've got a scene on Monday ... you're not going anywhere. That was the last time we saw him. He didn't do sad. He wanted everything to be glorious. He wasn't afraid of dying."

Linda isn't the only one of Larry's co-stars who misses the larger-than-life actor.

Patrick Duffy - who plays Bobby Ewing in the relaunched soap opera - admits he still knocks on Larry's trailer door every morning.

He said: "I knock on his trailer door every morning. It reminds me of our 35-year relationship. Every time I would go to work, I would knock on his door and go in before I did anything else. I don't expect him to answer the door - I'm not that crazy - but it's more just my connection with him."
