So, so sad.

In a GoFundMe dedicated to the late actor, his family noted that he was diagnosed with ALS five and a half years ago, and sadly lost his battle against the deadly disease:

“ALS is a horrible disease, and the costs associated with treatments and required caregivers are truly astronomical. But even as their personal debt continued to grow, Ken and [his wife] Susan chose to see the inevitability of Ken’s death as bringing with it many beautiful blessings. Since Ken’s diagnosis five and a half years ago, the family has been hell-bent on cherishing their fleeting time together, creating new incredible memories along the way.”

The late actor had notably starred in Star Trek: Discovery and Captain Marvel, in addition to a slew of other films and TV shows.

Our hearts are with the Mtichell family during this heartbreaking time. Rest in peace.
