Post by: Alex on November 02, 2020, 12:26:57 PM
Actor Eddie Hassell, best known for his roles in 2010's The Kids Are All Right and the US TV show Surface, has died after being shot in Texas, Hassell's manager tells Variety. He was 30.

According to his representative, Hassell died after being shot on Sunday morning in what appears to be a carjacking, although the incident is still being investigated.

Hassell was born on July 16, 1990 in Corsicana, Texas. He held several small roles throughout the 2000s and 2010s, most notably as Clay in the 2010 film The Kids Are All Right, also starring Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo. He also played Phil Nance on NBC's sci-fi series Surface, acting alongside Leighton Meester and Lake Bell.

Beyond acting, Hassell was an avid surfer and skateboarder. In a 2013 interview with Elle, Hassell said: "Skateboarding's been a huge part of my life, it also got me cast in commercials. I was into horseback riding and rodeos in Texas and when I moved to LA, I got into skating. I did all my own stunts. I'm into anything with a board: surfing, wakeboarding."

I'm not familiar with this actor, the only thing I own in my collection with Eddie Hassell in it is Surface. RIP
