Malcolm in the Middle and Veronica Mars actor Brad Bufanda has tragically died aged 34.
The actor, who starred as Felix Toombs on series one and two of Veronica Mars, passed away earlier this week after a suspected suicide, according to TMZ.
Bufanda also appeared in Malcolm in the Middle, Sons of Anarchy, Even Stevens, CSI: Miami and at the time of his death he was filming for Stan The Man, which was due for release in 2018.
At the age of 23, Brad planned on becoming a professional basketball player however after a series of injuries he was forced to change the direction of his life.
Amazingly it was then when he put his mind to acting and pursued a highly successful career.
Tributes to the star have been pouring in on social media:
