Don't watch the show and never heard of him, but look how young he was and he died of heart issues. Goes to show you that one never knows in life. Getting old is far from a guarantee. He was in fact about Martin's age give or take.

True story I went to a spot during Tribeca last year for Ben Stiller/Christine Taylor, and didn't research much. Turns out Nelsan was in the cast, a great surprise. He had a small entourage with him, but was very nice nonetheless. Obviously still needed his autograph, but very very sad to see him pass. He was one of the few consistently cool characters on True Blood.

Sounds like a similar thing that killed Amy Winehouse. Essentially a blood infection.

I sometimes wonder how all our outlooks of life would change if we were all given the exact day of our death in advance.

Ellis died at 39 on Saturday after spending years living with addictions to drugs and alcohol. In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, his family shared the circumstances of his death, which was due to heart failure related to complications from withdrawal from alcohol. “After many stints in rehab, Nelsan attempted to withdraw from alcohol on his own,” the statement reads. “According to his father, during his withdrawal from alcohol he had a blood infection, his kidneys shut down, his liver was swollen, his blood pressure plummeted, and his dear sweet heart raced out of control.”

Actually, one of my best justifications for combo hunting, I always tell myself it's better than drugs.

Hell, never mind hard drugs, I prefer a photo op addiction over addiction to cigarettes.
