As reported by TMZ, actor Mark Salling (35) was found dead in Sunland, California, where he lived. The news was confirmed by his lawyer, Michael Proctor.
Proctor shared a statement saying, “I can confirm that Mark Salling passed away early this morning. Mark was a gentle and loving person, a person of great creativity, who was doing his best to atone for some serious mistakes and errors of judgment. He is survived by his mother and father, and his brother. The Salling family appreciates the support they have been receiving and asks for their privacy to be respected.”
Salling was known for his role of Noah Puckerman on the hit show Glee. He was accused of possessing child pornography and pleaded guilty last month. His 7-year prison sentence was about to start in March.
