Actor Sam Gannon has died aged 31

The actor co-starred in scenes with veteran Emma Atkins, who plays Charity Dingle, in two episodes of Emmerdale as Kev.

Gannon will next be seen playing Dean in the currently in post-production movie Inside Fear, according to IMDb. The Northumberland Theatre Company, which featured him in multiple plays, paid him respect on Instagram.

On August 5, the business posted on its account, “We are profoundly grieved to hear of the demise of one of our own.”

The eulogy went on to say that he “delighted audiences with his charisma, his wit, and his great musical ability.”

Sam was compared by many as a human Duracell bunny because of his boundless energy, propensity for sprinting around the rehearsal space, and nearly overwhelming number of original ideas.

In conclusion, Sam might be difficult at times! But once you got him on that platform, he was always spectacular. He has also been called a wonderful person, a terrific friend to many, and a genuinely charming young man. We all shall miss you terribly, Sam.

Gannon’s family has established a JustGiving crowdsourcing page to earn money to transport his remains back to the UK for his funeral.
