Canadian actor Robert Cormier has suddenly died at age 33.

He had roles in Heartland, American Gods, and Ransom.

Cormier died on Friday in Etobicoke, Ontario, of injuries after a fall, according to his sister Stephanie, The Hollywood Reporter stated.

Cormier appeared in the CBC family drama Heartland as Finn Cotter, grandson of Al Cotter, who was portrayed by Duncan Fraser.

Cormier was born in Toronto on June 14, 1989.

He had studied economics at York University and in 2014 he graduated from the Toronto Academy of Acting for Film & Television. Two years later, he had an appearance on ABC’s Designated Survivor, portraying Kiefer Sutherland.

His childhood favorite actor was Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Heartland has posted on Twitter that “our thoughts are with him and his family during this difficult time.”

He is survived by his parents, Robert and Lisa, sisters Brittany, Krystal, and Stephanie, and grandmother Joanne. His funeral is set for Sunday in Etobicoke, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Robert was an athlete, an actor, and a great brother,” his family said. “He had a passion for helping others and was always looking to achieve more. He enjoyed movie nights with his family and looked up greatly to his father. He impacted many people throughout his life, whether it was family, teammates, and friends. Rob’s memory will live on through his passion for art and film as well as his three sisters, who meant the world to him.”
