He was 41.
“We are truly devastated at the loss of our beloved Heath Freeman. A brilliant human being with an intense and soulful spirit, he leaves us with an indelible imprint in our hearts,” Freeman’s manager Joe S. Montifiore said in a statement to CNN on Tuesday. “His life was filled with deep loyalty, affection, and generosity towards his family and friends, and an extraordinary zest for life.
Freeman played a killer on “Bones” from 2005 to 2007 and Benjamin Frank on “NCIS” in 2003.
The cause of Freeman’s death was not shared.
“There is nothing that I could say which could ever possibly do your existence justice, Heath,” he wrote. “We formed such a strong bond from the start, and you became a mentor to me. Watching you work was such a privilege. Your charisma, your talent, your humor, your passion and your red hot Irish temper will be dearly missed.”
