WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT HIS DEATH
The news of Philip’s death was confirmed on June 13th. The actor died of emphysema-related complications, according to reports. His daughter, Anna Ruth Hall, confirmed the news to the New York Times.
In an interview with the Washington Post in 2017, Philip discussed his diagnosis. In it, Philip explained that emphysema was caused by pneumonia and years of smoking. In 2015, the actor gave up smoking. He did, however, smoke on a regular basis prior to that.
In 2017, the actor’s health had deteriorated, and he was supported by an oxygen tank. Despite this, Philip was always willing to shoot, even if it meant only a few minutes per day.

Goddamn I just heard that Philip Baker Hall passed. He inhabited every role he played. Props to the man who said “I like simple pleasures, like butter in my ass and lollipops in my mouth. That's just me. That's just something that I enjoy.” RIP.
