Disney Channel Latin America star Sebastián Athié died at the age of 24. The actor’s cause of death remains unclear at this time.
On Saturday, Disney Channel Latin America confirmed Athié’s passing. The network took to Instagram to share the heartbreaking news.
Disney Channel Latin America shared the post with a caption in Spanish. Via Google Translate, the caption reads: “Rest in peace, Sebas. Your art and your smile stay forever. With much pain, we regret the departure of Sebastián Athié whom we will always remember for his great talent, companionship, professionalism, and above all, enormous heart. We accompany his family, colleagues, friends and fans in his farewell.”
Athié was primarily known for his role on “Once,” stylized as “O11CE.” The series follows a young man’s journey in becoming a professional football player. Athié portrayed a character named Lorenzo Guevara.
On his IMDB page, Athié’s only other acting credit includes two episodes of “La Rosa de Guadalupe.” He played characters named Samuel and Neto in the show’s seventh and eighth seasons, respectively.
One of Athié’s co-stars from “Once,” Daniel Panitio, took to Instagram to share a series of photos and videos of the two of them together.
Panitio’s post, translated to English from Google Translate reads: “Noble souls do not die and your light will be eternal, passion, discipline and love, so I will remember you, my roomie, my friend, my brother, God have your holy glory, I do not understand many times his plans, and for the first time it makes me feel to lose a brother, life I owe you a lot, I will miss you.”
