Fans paid tribute to the ‘wonderful, versatile and charismatic’ actor on social media. Read some of the eulogies:

_Sad to hear Frank McRae has passed away. His character Sharkey was one of the highlights of Licence to Kill; charismatic and provided great comic relief. #RIPFrankMcRae #JamesBond._

Another fan said:

_Not Frank McRae! The quintessential angry police chief in 48 Hours, Last Action Hero and National Lampoon’s Loaded Weapon 1. Terrific as Bond’s ally in Licence To Kill, too.’ (sic)_  

The late performer is survived by his son Marcellus and his grandchildren Camden, Jensen and Holden.
