(CNN) — Dennis Hopper, the one-time Hollywood enfant terrible who portrayed such indelible characters as “Easy Rider’s” biker Billy and “Blue Velvet’s” and huffing villain Frank Booth, died of prostate cancer Saturday morning at his home in Venice, California, his wife said. He was 74.

Hopper, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer last October, was surrounded by his children when he died, his wife, Victoria Hopper. told CNN.

Funeral arrangements have not been decided, but Hopper’s wish was to be buried in Taos, New Mexico, “his heart home,” Victoria Hopper said.

The American film icon made his last public appearance on March 26, 2010, when his star was dedicated on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.

Hopper played baddie Victor Drazen in 24‘s first season. He also starred with Kiefer Sutherland in the movies Flashback and The Last Days of Frankie The Fly. RIP.
