Storm Chasers Spell Out 'Twister' Star Bill Paxton's Initials on Global Positioning System

Actor Rob Lowe was one of many people in Hollywood who were hit hard by the death of actor Bill Paxton. Television will also remember a guy who lit up every room with infectious charm, energy and warmth, and as a great storyteller who loved to share entertaining anecdotes and stories about his work.

Paxton, who starred in Apollo 13 and Titanic, played a veteran meteorologist and storm chaser in the 1996 hit movie Twister, an icon for numerous real-life storm chasers who took part in Sunday's tribute.

"I said, 'God, would you give me a chance to make it?' Because I had been making short films", Paxton said.

Scandal star Tony Goldwyn, said "we lost you WAY too soon" whilst "devastated" actor Rob Lowe wrote a series of tweets paying tribute to his "close friend and one of the finest actors in the business". The actress played Paxton's daughter on the hit HBO show "Big Love", and in her emotional statement on February 28, she gushed over the "amazing father-figure" he was in real life.

A 10km stretch of the wall has already been built with cameras, motion sensors and other surveillance equipment. The government says however that dozens of migrants are still caught trying to cross the fence every day.

Before his death, Paxton was working on "Big Love", an HBO series about the head of a Mormon sect who practices bigamy.

Dallas reminded her that Paxton, best known for his parts in Aliens, Apollo 13 and Titanic, "loved everything in Hollywood history and everything with Hollywood tradition, and he would've been so furious with me if I didn't come celebrate", she told ET.

But according to Gizmodo, the best-ever Bill Paxton tribute took place thanks to stormchasers out in the Midwest. When you worked with Bill, you left with a little piece of him.

Paxton had wrapped Season 1 of the made-for-TV remake of the 2001 police drama film back in December, a publicity manager for "Training Day", told the Daily News. She continued, "I can't believe he won't be out there on a set somewhere anymore. Sorry. All were loved and all will be missed".
