Linda Gray is expressing her sadness over the loss of her Dallas costar Larry Hagman, who died Friday after battling throat cancer.
"Larry Hagman was my best friend for 35 years. He was the Pied Piper of life and brought joy to everyone he knew," Gray said in a statement released to PEOPLE Saturday. "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."
The actress, 72, played Sue Ellen Ewing, the wife of Hagman's notorious oilman J.R. Ewing, on Dallas beginning in 1978. She also appeared in the TNT reboot.

Dallas is back! And so are scheming brothers J.R. and Bobby Ewing. TNT's reboot of the classic primetime soap kicked off with its series premiere Wednesday night, and the backstabbing brothers did not disappoint.
But the new version of the show focuses on their sons, John Ross Ewing (Josh Henderson) and Christopher Ewing (Jesse Metcalfe). These two good-looking cousins pick up right where their feuding fathers left off.
Like his dad, John Ross is ambitious and wants to stick with the family business: oil. But Christopher, who was adopted by Bobby and his first wife Pam, is seeking an alternate energy source in methane mining, which goes in line with the wishes of his late grandmother, Ellie Ewing, who declared in her will that there would be no drilling on the family's iconic ranch, Southfork.

Like finding an abandoned Teddy Ruxpin at a garage sale or discovering a Swatch watch at the bottom of a Trivial Pursuit box, hearing the theme song to Dallas opens an instant wormhole to the '80s.
Wisely preserving the iconic tune – along with the now-retro scrolling opener – this updated take on the classic nighttime soap pulls off a 10-gallon-hat trick: It's both old and new, a comfy piece of nostalgia that doubles as a fresh guilty pleasure.
The secret is the blended cast, which successfully mixes fan favorites from the original (only Victoria Principal, who played Pam, is M.I.A.) with sexy Southfork newcomers. Ewing brothers J.R. (the ever-irascible Larry Hagman, letting his overgrown eyebrows do the heavy dramatic lifting) and Bobby (a still-buff Patrick Duffy) remain at odds, while their sons carry on the family feud.

Jesse Metcalfe was briefly hospitalized after falling from a second-story balcony in Monaco on Sunday, but suffered "no long term damage," according to his rep.
The Desperate Housewives actor, who was in Monaco to help host the World Music Awards, was sitting on the ledge of a balcony at the famous Jimmy'z club when he toppled backwards and fell 30 to 40 feet, says his London-based rep.
He was rushed to the Grasse hospital nearby where he had an X-ray and brain scan, and was discharged early Monday. He later flew to London where he was admitted to a private hospital and underwent a CAT scan. "Luckily for him it came up a clean bill of health," says the rep.
