Sad news to report, Verne Troyer has passed away at the age of 49. The Austin Powers star who played the role of Mini-Me passed away on Saturday.
No cause of death was immediately released.
Troyer was hospitalized earlier this month after emergency responders in Los Angeles went to his home, according to media reports.
“Verne was an extremely caring individual. He wanted to make everyone smile, be happy, and laugh,” a statement posted to his social media said. “Anybody in need, he would help to any extent possible. Verne hoped he made a positive change with the platform he had and worked towards spreading that message every day.”
Troyer will be missed.
