LOS ANGELES — James Redford, a filmmaker, activist and son of actor Robert Redford, has died. He was 58.
Robert Redford's publicist, Cindi Berger, said in a statement Monday that his 84-year-old father is mourning with his family during this "difficult time."
His wife, Kyle, confirmed in an interview with The Salt Lake Tribune that her husband died Friday from bile-duct cancer in his liver.
Kyle said her husband's liver disease returned two years ago and the cancer was discovered in November last year while he awaited a liver transplant.
She posted a slew of photos on Twitter including James, herself and their family.
James battled with liver disease for more than 30 years.
