Co-Star Remembers Patrick Swayze

We are all missing Patrick Swayze now. But what was it like to work with him?

Larry Gillard Jr., Swayze's co-star in "The Beast," Swayze's final show, joined Early Show co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez from Los Angeles to share his memories of the stellar actor.

"He was amazing to work with, just an amazing spirit. I learned a lot from working with him. You know, he was a professional, a consummate professional," said Gilliard, who also spent time with Swayze and his wife, Lisa off-set.

Swayze lost his two-year battle with pancreatic cancer this week.

According to Gillard, every day Swayze came to the set with "just something amazing" and brought "100 percent every day to the table."
