Sylvester Stallone Remembers ‘Rocky’ Co-Star Burt Young Who Died at 83
Sylvester Stallone is mourning a longtime friend’s death. The actor’s “Rocky” co-star Burt Young, who played his character’s brother-in-law Paulie, died on Oct. 8 at 83-years-old. Sylvester took to his Instagram on Oct. 18 to remember his pal. “To my Dear Friend, BURT YOUNG, you were an incredible man and artist, I and the World will miss you very much…RIP,” he penned next to an old picture of a scene from “Rocky.” News first broke of Burt’s death when his daughter, Anne, told The New York Times that her dad died in Los Angeles. The actor’s manager then shared a statement with multiple outlets. “Burt was an actor of tremendous emotional range. He could make you cry, and he could scare you to death,” the statement read. “But the real pathos that I experienced was the poignancy of his soul. That’s where it came from,” the statement read in part. Burt starred in all six “Rocky” movies, and he was even nominated for an Oscar thanks to his supporting role in the films!
