Robert Redford’s son died from an illness that causes ‘pale poo’ and ‘black urine.’

In 2020, actor Robert Redford expressed his “unfathomable” grief after losing his son, James, to cancer. Having outlived two of his four children, we look at the disease that killed Redford’s son at the age of 58 and the impact it had on Redford and his family.

The Oscar and Golden Globe winner, who can be seen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which airs tonight (Friday, August 12) on BBC One, first lost a child in 1959, when his ex-wife Lola Van Wagenen gave birth to baby Scott, and he died two months later due to sudden infant death syndrome.
