Actors David Soul
, Jaclyn Smith
and Tony Curtis
have paid tribute to late TV legend Aaron Spelling
, who died on Friday. The Hollywood producer, who was responsible for a host of shows including Charlie's Angels
, Starsky & Hutch
and Beverly Hills 90210
, passed away in his Los Angeles home following a stroke.
Former 'Angel' Smith laments, "Aaron's contributions in television are unequalled. To me, he was a dear friend and a truly genuine human being."
'Starsky & Hutch' star Soul says, "Spelling was one of those characters who doesn't exist too much in Hollywood anymore. He created a family of actors. He was television. He was an ideas man."
While Curtis, who starred in Spelling's 1970s TV series 'Vega$,' recalls, "Aaron loved Las Vegas. I got the impression he wanted to live here."
