Verne Troyer Dies

An actor known for his role in the Austin Powers films has died. Verne Troyer who played “Mini-Me” in the movies passed away Saturday at just 49-years-old.

So far a cause of death has not been released.

His death was confirmed by his official Facebook page where reps for the 32-inch tall actor wrote,

“It is with great sadness and incredibly heavy hearts to write that Verne passed away today. […]
Even though his stature was small and his parents often wondered if he’d be able to reach up and open doors on his own in his life, he went on to open more doors for himself and others than anyone could have imagined. He also touched more peoples hearts than he will ever know.
