British soap actor Sam Gannon has suddenly died at the age of 31. He appeared in the TV soap Emmerdale in the role of Kev. He suddenly died while traveling in the U.S., his family has announced according to reports. Reports say, he was visiting relatives in California when he passed away and the cause of death was not yet revealed, although his mother told the BBC her son had suffered from a heart condition from birth which had “reared its ugly head” recently.
His family has created a crowd-funding page to appeal for money to help bring their son home to Yorkshire in the UK. Its target is £17,000 ($20,520).
