Tributes have been paid to 'Ghostbusters' star Harold Ramis, who has died aged 69.
The actor and director died from complications of auto-immune inflammatory disease.
Ramis, who was born in Chicago, is best known for playing Dr Egon Spengler in 'Ghostbusters'.
He went on to work behind the camera on a string of films including 'Groundhog Day' and 'Analyse This'.
He moved back to Chicago in 1996, saying: "There's a pride in what I do that other people share because I'm local, which in LA is meaningless."
'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane tweeted: "Harold Ramis was a brilliant, shining example for every comedy writer hoping to achieve excellence in the field. He will be sorely missed."
