In his Instagram caption, Tristan looked back at his close friendship with the late actor.   

He wrote:  'A few pics with an old mate who we lost today. The friends you make when you first leave school are friends for life. Dieter was a fun, playful, deep-thinking guy who made life an adventure. 

'To friends of his and family, I feel deeply for you right now. So many people will have anecdotes to share of fun times with Diet. 

'These pics are mostly from London in '96 and Sydney a little earlier. Feeling devastated tonight, as are many. Take care, mate.'
