Hollywood actor, Cody Longo, famous for his roles in “Hollywood Heights” and “Days of Our Lives,” is dead. He was 34.
His representative, Alex Gittelson, told CNN on Friday that the actor was found dead at his home in Austin, Texas on Wednesday.
Longo’s wife, Stephanie, said, “Cody was our whole world. The kids and I are shattered and beyond devastated. He was the best dad and best father. We will always and forever miss you and love you.”
The cause of his death has not been confirmed as of this time.
Born March 4, 1988, in Littleton, Colorado, Longo started to find his footing in the entertainment industry in 2009 with roles in Ball Don’t Lie, Medium, Bring It on: Fight to the Finish and the Fame reboot. The actor also made appearances in several episodes of Make It or Break It, Days of Our Lives, CSI: NY and Nashville, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Cody was a dear friend, going back many years before he was a client,” Gittelson shared in a statement to THR. “My heart breaks for his amazing wife and beautiful kids. He had taken some time away from acting to pursue his music career and spend more time with his family in Nashville, but we had kept in touch regularly, and he was excited to get back into acting this year. Cody was such a loyal, loving and talented person, and he will be greatly missed.”
When he wasn’t appearing on the big or small screen, Longo was working on his music. He released a handful of singles, including his most popular song, “She Said.”
