The actor’s rep, Tabatha Minchew, confirmed the actor’s death in a statement. “Everyone loved Moses. He never met a stranger. He loved his fans as much as his family and friends. He was always excited to get auditions and work.”
“He was the kind of person who you could call in the middle of the night if you needed to talk or needed anything. He will be deeply missed by so many, his friends, family, costars and fans,” she continued.
Moseley started his career with 2012’s Joyful Noise but made his big break in The Walking Dead. He was featured in 6 episodes from 2012 to 2015. He has enjoyed regular work since that role, including stints in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Watchmen.
Not only was Moseley’s character memorable for fans, but he was also a regular on the convention circuit. He even had his own action figure!
