Hollywood producer A.C. Lyles has died, aged 95.

Lyles, whose full name was Andrew Craddock Lyles Jr., passed away at his home in Los Angeles on Friday (27Sep13).

The filmmaker began working for a Paramount-owned theatre in his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida when he was 10 years old.

He eventually made his way to California, where he started working in the studio's mailroom and worked his way up to become a publicist and producer.

His screen credits include Young Fury (1965), Waco (1966) and most recently, U.S. Tv series Deadwood, which aired on the HBO network from 2004 to 2006.
