"I had never really gotten into acting for the stardom or the fame or the attention, I did it because I liked acting. That show brought a lot of press and attention around me and my personal life. I was right on the cusp of puberty, going through that awkward stage. To be put under a microscope like that is kind of a bizarre addition to your life that obviously not a lot of other people can relate to," he told The AV Club in 2015.
The Portland-base star’s cause of death has not yet been confirmed.
