They report that Shane died at his home in the early hours of Friday morning. No cause of death has been given.
Shane was born in Ontario, Canada, but moved to the UK when he was in his late twenties, first working as a cabaret singer, before auditioning for Thunderbirds, which began production in 1964.
He would go on to reprise the role of Scott Tracy, the pilot of Thunderbird 1, in two feature-length films, Thunderbirds Are GO and Thunderbird 6, later providing voices for other Gerry Anderson shows like Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons and Joe 90.
As well as voice acting, Shane appeared in a number of cult films, including Star Wars, Dr Strangelove and Superman II.
He also holds the distinction of appearing in more James Bond films than any other actor – with the exception of cast members in recurring roles – playing small parts in The Spy Who Loved Me, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds Are Forever and Live And Let Die. However, many of these film roles were uncredited.
Shane’s final on-screen credit was in 2012, in Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s vampire-themed film Dark Shadows.
In more recent years, he turned his hand to writing, releasing the self-published novel Long Shot in 2014, as well as his autobiography, from Thunderbirds To Pterodactyls.

An injured seal was left whimpering after it became stranded on the cobblestones of a harbour for more than 24 hours. Heartbreaking video shows fisherman Kit Gallagher approaching the poor creature 'crying for help' after the tide brought it to shore. Kit, 50, found the young seal when he was checking on his boat in the harbour at Bridlington, Yorks., and notified a nearby Sea Life Centre upon discovery. He returned to the scene the next day to find the vulnerable animal still hadn't moved from the cobblestones and was still in distress. Kit said: "I came to the harbour to check on my boat and was told by a friend that a seal was on the south slope and it didn't look very well and that he thought it had a poor flipper. "I phoned Scarborough Sea Life and told them where it was. "I came back at 8am the next morning and found it still there and made an update video as I had thousands of people asking for an update. "I was told a call had already been made to the Sea Life Centre, so I went home and came to check a few hours later. "When I came back the seal was gone and I was told that the seal rescue had been with it all afternoon. "I was told by someone on the harbour that they had taken it, I think the seal arrived that morning as the tide was coming up." British Divers Marine Life Rescue were called out to the scene but the seal had gone by the time they arrived. A spokesperson for the charity said: "We didn't pick up this seal in but we did pick up another one that we kept overnight and then released the next day." It is a busy time of year for seals up and down the east coast as they regularly rest on beaches and in harbours. The charity added: "If you find a seal on a beach, watch it from a distance. Do not approach the animal. "Seals regularly haul out on our coasts - it is part of their normal behaviour and, in fact, they spend more time out of the water, digesting their food and resting than in it. "Therefore, finding a seal on the beach does not mean there is necessarily a problem and do not chase it into the sea as this may stop it from doing what it needs to do - rest. "A healthy seal should be left alone." They concluded that this seal would have returned to the water itself. The footage was filmed on March 17.
