Mike Heslin, known for appearing in 2023 thriller series Lioness, died after experiencing an ‘unexpected cardiac event.’

He was 30.

Doctors reportedly had no explanation for what happened.

Heslin was ‘young’ and ‘in perfect health.’

Per Daily Mail:

Heslin appeared in two episodes of Lioness and acted in various television series including In Their Shoes: A Journey to Homelessness, The Influencers, House Sitting, I Love You… But I Lied, Younger and 7 Deadly Sins.

He also played a role in 2023 rom-com The Holiday Proposal Plan and 2020 TV movie Boy*Friends.

In his post, Dynamo — who has been with Heslin since 2018 and married him less than a year ago in November 2023 — shared a carousel of photos and penned a tearjerking eulogy gushing about his beloved husband.

The grieving spouse noted that Heslin died three weeks from his 31st birthday and four months from their first wedding anniversary.

Considering Heslin reportedly was ‘in perfect health,’ the elephant in the room is if he received the experimental COVID-19 shot.

“Baby got vaxxed,” Heslin wrote in April 2021.

“Rest in peace, Michael. When I felt you take your last breath, my heart shattered into a million pieces. If I had the power to trade places with you, I would do it in an instant. But I will take it one day at a time like you always told me to, and live every day in your honor,” Scotty Dynamo wrote.

Variety reports:

Heslin was an organ donor and had “given the gift of life to four different families,” Dynamo wrote.

In addition to playing Polo on two episodes of the Taylor Sheridan series “Lioness” in 2023, Heslin created and starred in the 2020 “The Influencers,” a scripted mockumentary which was nominated for a Queerty award and streamed on Prime Video.

He also appeared in the Christmas movie “The Holiday Proposal Plan” on Lifetime, the Noggin series “In Their Shoes: A Journey Into Homelessness” and on the series TV Land series “Younger.”

On the 2020 movie “Boy*Friends,” Heslin had a co-producing credit and co-starred as Rupert. His short film “Happy Halloween” won several awards at horror festivals including best first-time director.

Born in California, he earned a BFA in Directing from the Boston Conservatory, according to his official website.
