Mike Heslin, actor in “Lioness”, died at the age of 30, doctors have “no explanation”

Actor Mike Heslin died of “unexpected cardiac arrest,” his husband, Scotty Dynamo, announced via Instagram on Friday. He was only 30 years old.

The widower said the “Special Ops: Lioness” actor, whom he remembers as his “best friend” and “friend,” died Tuesday after “a week-long battle in the hospital.”

“Michael was young, in perfect health, and the doctors have no explanation for what happened,” Dynamo added alongside a slideshow of photos of Heslin throughout his life, including his wedding day.

The DJ said his late wife was a “brilliant, devoted, talented and real-life guardian angel” who helped him beat “multiple rounds of cancer”, and was a “shoulder to lean on” and gave “the best advice”. “

“When I felt you take your last breath, my heart shattered into a million pieces,” Dynamo continued. “If I had the power to trade with you, I would do so at once.”

The music artist said he and the ‘Holiday Proposal Plan’ actor were in the ‘early stages’ of starting a family together and that the latter said he felt he was ‘meant to be a dad’.

Dynamo ended his heartfelt message by writing, “Michael, in the words of Shania Twain:
I will love you ‘forever and ever’”.

A GoFundMe was created to raise funds for the late actor’s funeral and hospital expenses.

Heslin’s latest post on social media showed him sitting poolside with Dynamo, showing off his fit physique.

The death of the “Influencers” actor caused a lot of shock and confusion among family, friends and fans.

“This is simply incomprehensible. Sending you all the love I have,” one person commented under Dynamo’s post.

Sudden cardiac arrest, which is when the heart “malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly,” is the leading cause of death among young athletes but still remains relatively rare, according to the National Institutes of Health.

In July 2023, LeBron James’ then-18-year-old son went into cardiac arrest while at basketball practice for the University of Southern California.

It was then revealed that the “probable” cause of Bronny James’ heart disease was an “anatomically and functionally significant congenital heart defect.”
