LOS ANGELES (AP) — James Redford, a filmmaker, activist and son of actor Robert Redford, has died. He was 58.

Robert Redford’s publicist, Cindi Berger, said in a statement Monday that his 84-year-old father is mourning with his family during this “difficult time.”

James' wife, Kyle, confirmed in an interview with The Salt Lake Tribune that her husband died Friday from bile-duct cancer in his liver.

She posted on twitter "Jamie died today. We're heartbroken. He lived a beautiful, impactful life (and) was loved by many. He will be deeply missed. As his wife of 32 (years), I'm most grateful for the two spectacular children we raised together. I don't know what we wouldn't done (without) them over the past 2 (years)."

Kyle said her husband’s liver disease returned two years ago and the cancer was discovered in November last year while he awaited a liver transplant.

James battled with liver disease for more than 30 years.
