Larry Hagman thought death would feel like taking drugs.

The late 'Dallas' star - who passed away aged 81 from throat cancer last Friday (23.11.12) - was looking forward to dying because he expected it to feel like his past experiences of going on a hallucinogenic LSD trip.

His co-star and close friend Linda Gray told The Hollywood Reporter: ''He was very open about having done LSD and he'd say, 'I'm not afraid of dying. I've gone to the other side and I know it's wonderful.' ''

Larry was famed for playing TV villain J.R. Ewing in the long-running US sitcom and Linda played his long-suffering wife Sue Ellen.

She explained the beloved actor had invited his entire family and friends to his hospital bedside in Medical City Dallas Hospital, Dallas, so he could be surrounded by loved ones on Thanksgiving Day (22.11.12).

She added: ''He'd gotten to speak with everyone in the family individually. Then it was like, 'OK, I'm done.' ''

Larry struggled with alcohol addiction throughout his life and had a liver transplant in 1995. His wife of 58 years, Maj, is currently in a home suffering from Alzheimer's.

At the time of his death, Linda issued a statement saying: ''Larry Hagman was my best friend for 35 years. He was the Pied Piper of life and brought joy to everyone who knew him. He was creative, generous, funny, loving and talented. I'll miss him enormously.''
