Actor and director Harold Ramis, best known for the films Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day, has died aged 69. The star found fame as bespectacled ghost-hunter Egon Spengler in the Ghostbusters franchise in 1984. But he was also a talented writer and director, whose credits included Caddyshack and Animal House.
He died of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that involves swelling of the blood vessels.The star had been quiet about his illness, which dated back to 2010, but several friends had visited him recently, including Bill Murray, from whom he’d been estranged for years, the Chicago Tribune said.
He is survived by his wife, Erica, sons Julian and Daniel, daughter Violet and two grandchildren.
