Scott Wilson had filmed his scenes for season 9 of The Walking Dead, prior to his death on Saturday.

Wilson played Hershel Greene on AMC’s The Walking Dead series in its second, third and fourth season, and was earlier announced to return to reprise his role in the upcoming season. The episode which will see the return of the actor will air during the first half of the ninth season.

Wilson died on Saturday at the age of 76 after battling with leukaemia for years. His sudden death caused stir on Twitter, as many of his co-stars took to social media to share their condolences for Wilson’s family and fans.

“The first time I met Scott Wilson, he gave me a big hug and said that this thing I had become apart of… was a family,” King Ezekiel actor Khary Payton wrote. Payton and Wilson did not share the set prior to Season Nine. “He said I had a responsibility to take care of it. I have tried very hard to do that, sir. & I will continue. I promise. See you on the other side, my friend.”

“Rest easy my friend,” Cudlitz wrote. “Rest easy.”
