Christopher Plummer loved his career as an actor and worked right up until his death on Feb. 5, 2021, at age 91.

On Twitter, Evans shared a favorite memory from working with Plummer. "This is truly heartbreaking. What an unbelievable loss. Few careers have such longevity and impact," he wrote. "One of my favorite memories from Knives Out was playing piano together in the Thrombey house between set ups. He was a lovely man and a legendary talent."

"My Dear ol drinkin and runnin buddy...see ya on the other side. RIP," Don Johnson wrote in an Instagram post that included a photo of himself with Plummer and Curtis. It's no secret that Christopher Plummer was one of the most talented actors of his generation, but his co-stars remembered him as a caring, generous person as well.

I will always think of you with love and admiration. Rest In Peace."

Curtis also shared a photo of Plummer and explained the backstory. "I made this portrait of Christopher Plummer the first day of filming @knivesout As I played his eldest child I wanted to connect a moment with him and I sat in the little study that he had as a room to wait in and we talked," she recalled. "I had very little work with him but we made a lovely connection. His work in that movie is full of life, love and longing. A beautiful portrayal. Honored to have been able to work with him. A warm Aloha, Christopher."

Rian Johnson posted a tweet of a black-and-white photo of Plummer. "RIP to Christopher Plummer, a living legend who loved his craft, and was an absolute gentleman. So lucky to have shared a set with him," the Knives Out director wrote.
