Former child actor Evan Ellingson, who appeared in such films and television shows as “My Sister’s Keeper” and “CSI: Miami,” has passed away. He was 35. Online records from the Coroner’s section of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department show that Ellingson passed away on Sunday.
The record indicates he was found in “a bedroom” in the city of Fontana, which is about an hour east of Los Angeles County. The official cause of death has not been disclosed.
In an effort to learn more, CNN has contacted Ellingson’s loved ones and the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office. In the 2009 drama “My Sister’s Keeper,” about a family dealing with their young daughter’s cancer diagnosis, Ellingson played the lead role of Jesse Fitzgerald.
Abigail Breslin, Jason Patric, and Cameron Diaz also starred in the film, and so did Ellingson. His first role on TV was as “young Chuck” in the 2001 TV movie “Living in Fear,” which IMDb lists as his first.
He went on to star in 19 episodes of the ABC sitcom “Complete Savages” between 2004 and 2005, and he co-starred with Kiefer Sutherland during Season 6 of the Fox TV series “24” as a young actor.
“My childhood was a cool one,” Ellingson said in a 2009 interview, adding, “I was busy doing the things I love. I had no regrets because I found my passion for acting early on.”
Over the course of the 2000s, he was also a recurring or main cast member on shows like “General Hospital,” “Mad TV,” and “Titus.” For example, Ellingson was in the 2006 military picture “Letters from Iwo Jima” and the 2007 independent comedy “Walk the Talk.”
Ellingson’s last known acting role was as Kyle Harmon on “CSI: Miami,” which he portrayed for three seasons (2007-2010). Ellingson’s personal Facebook page proclaims his “love” for surfing, camping, hiking, and equestrian pursuits.
