Evan’s father, Michael, was able to give us a bit more detail — telling TMZ Evan was found at a sober-living home. We’re told he’d struggled with drugs in the past, but was doing better of late — and that his sudden passing comes as a complete shock to the family.Advertisement
Ellingson is perhaps best remembered starring opposite Cameron Diaz — playing her teenage son — in 2009’s “My Sister’s Keeper.” He was also well-known for his recurring role as Kyle Harmon on “CSI: Miami” … in which he starred for a total of 18 episodes over 3 years.
He’d actually gotten his start in showbiz at the age of 13 with a small role in a TV movie as well as a guest appearance on ‘General Hospital.’ From there, EE went on to act in shows like ‘Titus,’ ‘That Was Then,’ ‘Mad TV,’ ‘Complete Savages,’ ‘Bones,’ ’24’ and others.
Ellingson also acted in a handful of films, such as ‘Walk the Talk,’ ‘Letters from Iwo Jima,’ ‘The Bondage,’ ‘Confession,’ ‘Rules of the Game,’ ‘Time Changer,’ ‘The Gristle’ and more.
“His cause of death has not been determined. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday morning,” People noted.
Ellingson is the latest actor to die suddenly in recent weeks.
