If you've spent an afternoon snivelling into the cuff of your dressing gown while watching BeachesPretty Woman or The Princess Diaries, then there's no doubt that you – like million others – were touched by the work of Garry Marshall.

The Hollywood actor, director and producer, who was responsible for some of the most romantic, touching and heartwrenching movies of our time, has passed away at the age of 81, and tributes are currently flooding in from stars around the world.

Credited for giving well-known actors their first big break, the Hollywood heavy-hitter broke into showbusiness in the late 1950s, began churning out hits – from the small screen to the silver – and continued for decades.

Devastated by the death of the much-loved movie-maker, actors and actresses have taken to social media in their droves to pay tribute to a man who began his career as a joke writer before becoming a writer on The Tonight Show in 1970.

From The Odd Couple and Mork and Mindy to Beaches and Pretty Woman, Garry Marshall is known for making his audience weep tears of laughter and sorrow, and will be sorely missed by those in the industry.





Talk about dreams come true. 

The Princess Diaries only had two instalments which in our opinion is not nearly enough, 

And it seems that Hollywood agrees with us because news has just broke of a final film to complete the popular trilogy. 

Director Garry Marshall spilled the beans while out on a press stint for his latest flick, Mother's Day. 

"I was with Anne Hathaway a couple weeks ago, it looks like we want to do Princess Diaries 3 in Manhattan," said the director of the original films. 

"Anne is very pregnant, so we have to wait until she has the baby and then I think we're going to do it."

That's good enough for us! 

The director even hinted at the return of another star, Chris Pine, who appeared in the second film. 

"Maybe… He's quite big now, you know.

"[But] Chris Pine likes me, you know why? Because his father is in Mother's Day!"

Ooh, what a fortunate coincidence… 

And the question on everyone's lips: what about Julie Andrews? No word as of yet but lets just say watch this space…
