Actor Christopher Malcolm has died at the age of 67.

Malcolm passed away on Saturday, but his cause of death has not been revealed. His daughter, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm, broke the news of his passing on Twitter, writing, "Today the world lost a beautiful, brilliant man. My dad Christopher Malcolm left peacefully and with dignity. He will always be my hero."

The Scottish actor was best known for his role as Brad Majors in the original U.K. stage production of "The Rocky Horror Show" in 1973.

In 1978, he began his career as a theater producer and earned a Laurence Olivier Awards nomination for Best Musical Revival for his West End musical "Pal Joey," and in 1981, he took home the Laurence Olivier Best Comedy Award for English playwright Nell Dunn's "Steaming." He also co-produced a 1990 revival of "The Rocky Horror Show" at the Piccadilly Theatre and worked on "Footloose" the Musical and "A Slip of the Tongue," starring John Malkovich.

In addition to his theater work, he also starred in several movies and TV shows including "The Empire Strikes Back," "Labyrinth," "Highlander" and "Absolutely Fabulous."
