Kim Manners, who directed 52 episodes of The X-Files and also served as a producer on the show, has passed away at the age of 59 after a battle with lung cancer.

Manners was always famous on the X-Files set for his good-natured love of cursing. There’s a great article about him here.

Check out his X-Files episodes here, and the rest of his voluminous credits here.

There are a lot of my favorites on that X-Files list.

Godspeed, sir. You will be missed.
