"Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time", the statement read further.

"Every time he would walk on set I would always shout at him, 'In my next life I'm coming back as Anthony Bourdain!'" she said.

"Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did", Argento wrote.
