Just two months before Jamie’s tragic death, Robert celebrated his 84th before with his beloved children, grandchildren and his second wife, Sibylle Szaggars, whom he married in 2009. The Out of Africa actor opened up about focusing his time on meaningful things like his family and career.

Later that year he appeared in the prison drama Brubaker (1980), playing a prison warden attempting to reform the system. As well, his directorial debut, Ordinary People, which followed the disintegration of an upper-class American family after the death of a son, was one of the most critically and publicly acclaimed films of the decade, winning four Oscars, including Best Director for Redford himself, and Best Picture.

Before his death, Jamie was a highly notable film director in showbiz. Throughout the 2000s, he produced, directed and wrote tons of award-winning TV shows and movies including 2017’s Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution, 2013’s Toxic Hot Seat, 2012’s The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia, 2010’s Mann v. Ford and 1999’s The Kindness of Strangers.

Starting in 1960, Redford appeared as a guest star on numerous television drama programs, including Naked City, Maverick, The Untouchables, The Americans, Whispering Smith, Perry Mason, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Route 66, Dr. Kildare, Playhouse 90, Tate, The Twilight Zone (playing the character 'Death'), The Virginian, and Captain Brassbound's Conversion with a young Christopher Plummer, among others.

Charles Robert Redford Jr. (born August 18, 1936) is an American actor, director, and activist. He is the recipient of various accolades, including two Academy Awards, a British Academy Film Award, two Golden Globe Awards, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In 2014, Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Redford notoriously bottles up his pain inside. In 1998 he confessed in an interview: “People think it’s been easy for me. That’s hard to live with. It’s so untrue. The hardest thing in the world is when your children have problems. There have been so many hits on our family that no one knows about and I don’t want them to for my family’s sake.” Tragedy almost struck again when his second son Jamie was born seven weeks’ premature suffering extreme hyaline membrane disease, a respiratory problem that almost killed him. Redford devotes just a few words to this heartache. “The doctors gave Jamie a 40-60 chance but he hung in. Over a month his condition improved and then he stabilised. It was a colossal relief for us.” (Source: www.express.co.uk)
