Robert Culp, the actor who played the antagonist Wallace Breen in Half Life 2, has died at the age of 79.

Culp died after falling on a sidewalk in a park in Los Angeles, although it’s unknown if that was the cause of death.

He’ll mostly be remembered for his TV and movie work, but it was Half Life 2 that made him famous with gamers.

Culp’s role was as the overseer of City 17 in Half Life 2, Dr Wallace Breen, having previously been the administrator of the Black Mesa facility from Half Life 1.

He saved humanity from being exterminated by the Combine before the events of Half Life 2, but managed to broker a deal which seen the human race survive, but on terms of enslavery.

Culp is survived by his wife, five children and five grandchildren.
