Harold Hunter was found dead in his apartment Friday with cocaine "on and around" his body, police told Saturday's New York Post.

Hunter, 31, skated in Larry Clark's movie about an HIV-positive skateboarder.

His sister, Rebecca Atkins, told the Post: "He was saying stuff like, 'When I die I'm going to be famous.'

"He used to have this saying, 'Legends never die,'" she added.
