Davy Crockett actor Fess Parker dies, aged 85

Actor Fess Parker, famous for playing American pioneer Davy Crockett in Walt Disney’s classic 1950s TV series, has died in California at the age of 85.

The Texas-born actor launched a craze for coonskin caps and buckskin shirts with his sturdy turn as the US icon.

Parker went on to play Daniel Boone, another real-life frontiersman, in a 1960s TV show before retiring.

Actor turned California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger paid tribute to him as “a true Hollywood legend”.

“Fess Parker has been a role model and idol of mine since I first saw him on the big screen,” he said in a statement.
