American Horror Story actor Harry Hains has died.
The 27-year-old's mum Jane Badler confirmed the news on Instagram, revealing that he had struggled with his mental health prior to his death.
She wrote: "He was 27 and had the world at his feet. But sadly he struggled with mental illness and addiction.
"A brilliant spark shone bright too short a time... I will miss you, Harry, every day of my life."
However, as yet, the Australian model's cause of death has not been revealed.
The actor, who also starred in shows such as The OA, had identified as gender fluid.
He was also a musician who performed under the name ANTIBOY, an alter ego he had described as a 'gender fluid robot from the future'.
Speaking in an interview last year, he said: "I know that I am born male but I don't think I represent what it means to be a man.
"I believe we should be whatever we want. It gets kind of confusing when we start labelling ourselves so I try to stay away from labels.
"I grew up in Melbourne and I had a very open and accepting family. Dating someone of either sex didn't make a difference to me."
Harry's last Instagram post, a photograph of him and a friend, was shared on New Year's Eve.
It read: "To 2020! The new era has already begun. So let's all keep only moving forward, staying so present to enjoy each and every moment throughout this beautiful new beginning.
"Happy New Year, peeps. So much love and gratitude for all in my life."
According to reports, the actor's funeral service will be held at the Hollywood Forever cemetery, Los Angeles, on Sunday, 12 January.
