Actor Verne Troyer, most famous for his role as 'Mini-Me' in the Austin Powers films, died at the age of 42.
His death was announced on Saturday afternoon in an official statement on his official Facebook page. A cause of death was not given.
“Over the years he’s struggled and won, struggled and won, struggled and fought some more, but unfortunately this time was too much,” the statement said. “Depression and suicide are very serious issues. You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help.”
Troyer was one of the shortest people in the world, standing at just two feet, eight inches.
