Actor Cody Longo, known for his appearances on the popular soap opera “Days of Our Lives,” has passed away at the age of 34 in Austin, Texas. According to reports, Longo’s wife Stephanie discovered his body in their home and called the police. The family believes that Longo’s battle with alcoholism, which he had been seeking treatment for, may have contributed to his death.
Throughout his career, Longo also performed under the name Cody Anthony and got his start in acting in the mid-2000s. He went on to feature in guest-starring roles on TV and had small parts in several films. In 2011, Longo landed a recurring role on “Days of Our Lives,” where he appeared in eight episodes. Longo was also known for his musical talent and was born in Littleton, Colorado on March 4, 1988. Despite his young age, he made a significant impact in the entertainment industry and will be remembered for his many talents.
Cody Longo’s passion for music and acting collided when he landed the role of rock star Eddie Duran in the musical dramedy series “Hollywood Heights” on Teen Nick in 2012. In an interview with Young Entertainment in 2014, Longo shared his commitment to both music and acting, stating that he worked hard to pursue his passions and inspire others to do the same. Longo’s musical talents were well-received and led to his success on the music charts, as he broke into the top 3 of the iTunes pop charts in 2013. He continued to make music throughout his career and was committed to his craft.
Although he was one of the younger “Days of Our Lives” actors to pass away, Longo’s legacy as a talented and hardworking artist will live on. In addition to his wife Stephanie, he is survived by his two sons and daughter. The fulfilment of his professional dreams serves as an inspiration to aspiring musicians and actors who are striving to reach their own goals.
The loss of a beloved actor is always a sad and emotional event, reminding us that even the stars we admire on screen are not immune to the inevitability of death. The art and performances of actors live on forever, but the individuals behind them have limited time on this earth.
In 2022, the entertainment industry mourned the passing of many talented actors, including Oscar winners Sidney Poitier, William Hurt, and Louise Fletcher, as well as comedians Louie Anderson and Bob Saget, TV legends Angela Lansbury, Kirstie Alley, and Nichelle Nichols, and prominent movie actors James Caan and Ray Liotta.
As we move forward into 2023, it is likely that we will have to say goodbye to more of our cherished performers. While their loss is deeply felt, we can take comfort in the memories they have left behind and the timeless impact of their art.
