Sam Gannon Death Cause: Sam Gannon, a star of Emmerdale, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday at just 31. Police are currently looking into the exact circumstances, although they do not believe his death was suspicious. Over the pond, he had been staying with relatives. The actor’s sister Amy Kelly shared the news of his passing on Tuesday, calling her brother Sam “a firestorm, to put it mildly, a unique character.”
The actor is survived by his mother, Angie, his brothers Jason and Jordan, and his partner and “love of his life,” Zoe. He also leaves behind his nephews Louis and Evan and his nieces Matilda and Bethany.
Sam was a “real life Duracell bunny” with a seemingly limitless amount of vitality and love, according to his grieving buddy Lewis Matthews. He charmed audiences with his wit, humour, and amazing musical ability.
Sam Gannon had a very sensitive nature and truly cared about other people. He clearly touched the hearts of a lot of people, as evidenced by the tributes we have received.
Sam shared the screen with Emma Atkins, who played Charity Dingle, in two episodes of the ITV soap opera in which he played Kev, a coachman for a horse-drawn carriage. It is believed that the deceased former student of Brayton High School, who grew up in Brayton, close to Selby, was visiting family in Willows, California, at the time of his passing.
Sam was a true performer; according to the sources, any further funds will be given to a UK organization that supports young actors, as this is a subject dear to Sam’s heart. (Ngnews 247)
