MODS - not too sure if this is the best Forum for this Thread - please move if inappropriate.

Media sources are announcing the death of Verne Troyer - Mini-me from the Austin Powers films, Men in Black, and the hideous Big Brother, where his mobility cart pummelled the set as he drove it about, half cut. Sadly, Troyer struggled hugely and publicly with alcoholism.

To echo what his family wrote, "Depression and suicide are very serious issues."If you need help or know someone who does please reach out to a mental health professional.

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee....RIP...

Looks like it may have been suicide.

He punched above his weight that's for sure!

- he obviously found his condition a terrible burden

May he Rest in Peace.
Yes it was a burden. I think when someone is that tiny, many sortof see them as children no matter what their age and that can be frustrating (particularly finding a car that you can drive).

Rest in Peace.
