The Lost Boys star, Corey Haim, has passed away at only 38, said the Los Angeles coroner’s office this evening.
The actor passed away in the early hours of Wednesday morning at Providence St Joseph Medical Centre confirmed a spokesperson for the office.
No cause of death has yet been confirmed, but a post-mortem will be carried out.
Haim’s first role was in Firstborn, a hit in the 80’s and went on to star in 1988 film, License to Drive, with Corey Feldman who he would go on to have an ongoing on and off screen partnership with.
The Canadian born actor appeared with Feldman in The Two Corey’s, a reality show that was cancelled in 2008 after two seasons.
The pair had both battled drug addictions in the past, and Haim had recently started talking to the press about his problems.
Haim will be best known for his role in The Lost Boys, playing Kiefer Sutherland’s friend who did battle with teenage vampires.
He also starred in 1986 film Lucas with Winona Ryder and TV film A Time to Live.
