The award-winning actor also praised the iconic star for his role in the civil rights movement in America in the ’50s and ’60s.

Jeffrey – who has won various awards throughout his career including an Emmy, a Tony and a Golden Globe – wrote on the microblogging platform: “Harry Belafonte was a standard-bearer in the Robeson tradition of cross-generational artistry and deeply informed and engaged social and political engagement. Perhaps the last of a great tribe. As smart as he was stunningly handsome. He met the moment his whole life. What a man. RIP (sic)”
