Rest in Peace: Actor Evan Helmuth



Some sad news has come our way today as we’ve learned that The Devil Inside co-star Evan Helmuth has passed away at the all-too-young age of just 40. According to Deadline, Helmuth died Monday (July 17th) of complications from a stroke.

An alumnus of the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, Helmuth attended the USC School of Dramatic Arts. It was there where he met future TV writer/producer Josh Appelbaum, who co-wrote the “Alias” episode that featured Helmuth in a guest starring role.

“Evan was the warmest, most generous soul imaginable,” Appelbaum said Wednesday regarding his longtime friend. “His passion for this industry was only outweighed by his passion for his friends. We met over 20 years ago at USC, where Evan was an instant lightning rod on the stage. He loved his craft, he loved entertaining audiences and he was as good as it gets at both. (He also loved PEARL JAM!!!) His life and legacy will never be forgotten by the countless broken hearts around Los Angeles tonight…”

Helmuth is survived by his sister, Erika; his stepmother, Paula; and his beloved dog, Sasha.  Our condolences to all his friends and family members.
