Time passes and so do we. He gave me many memorable moments when growing up with the movies he was in.

LOS ANGELES: -- Legendary actor Rod Taylor died of natural causes Wednesday, his rep tells PEOPLE. He was 84.

The Australia-born movie star appeared in more than 50 Hollywood films throughout his career, from The Time Machine and The Train Robbers to The Catered Affair. More recently, he voiced Pongo in Disney's family-favorite 101 Dalmatians and played Winston Churchill in Inglourious Basterds.

But his most iconic role was that of Mitch Brenner in Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 classic The Birds, opposite Tippi Hedren.

"There are so many incredible feelings I have for him. Rod was a great pal to me and a real strength, we were very, very good friends," Hedren, 84, said in a statement. "He was one of the most fun people I have ever met, thoughtful and classy, there was everything good in that man."

Awww, that's too bad.
I had a little crush on Rod Taylor when I was about 13. I saw both The Time Machine and The Birds on TV about that time, and I thought he was dreamy.

He would have been 85 on Monday.. I looked in the
mirror and the whole ensemble in the rooming house
is gone now. Close behind go we all. I miss them a lot.

Looked up to him a lot just for class and his hard work.
Been feeling bad all day again, and today for a good reason.
See you in WoopWoop Rodney... crack a Foster's for me.
