41-Year-Old Nick Cordero Dies After A Long Battle With COVID
On 30th March, Cordero entered the emergency room in Los Angeles. The actor had lots of setbacks during his time in the hospital. But the actor couldn’t seem to get better.
He had blood clots, mini-strokes, sepsis infections, a tracheostomy and temporary pacemaker implant. Cordero’s right leg got amputated, he was on a ventilator, and was unconscious for a long time. Doctors said that he needed a lung transplant soon.
Nick Cordero was married to another fellow Broadway actor Amanda Kloots since 2017. Amanda sent him videos of his one-year-old son Elvis every day. She made sure to encourage him by sending him wishes from his family and friends.
Amanda said that it was difficult for her to see Nick in such a fragile state. She was unsure if Nick even understood anything she said.
Hollywood Mourns Nick Cordero
Nick Cordero worked in the theatre industry for a long time. He won many awards and got appreciated for his works. Here’s what his fellow actors said after hearing the news of his death.
Zack Braff said,
“Nick Cordero passed at 11:40 am today with his mother and wife by his side. I can honestly tell you I have never met a kinder human being. Don’t believe that COVID only claims the elderly and infirm. I am so grateful for the time we had. We’ll catch up some other time.”
Whereas, Little Women fame Florence Pugh wrote,
“It is so shocking and devastating to see one of your own come down as hard as he did. Over the last few months, I’ve wanted to ask myself every day- What can I do to help? But, instead, I’ll ask all of you, What can WE do it help?”
Amanda Speaks About Her Husband
In a long post on Instagram, Amanda told everyone about Nick’s passing. She thanked everyone who helped her in times of turmoil and helped Nick live those 95 tough days with a smile on his face.
At the end of her tribute, she said,
As I sang the last line (of Live Your Life) to him, “they’ll give you hell but don’t you light them kill your light not without a fight. Live your life.”
We give our tributes to Amanda and Elvis in their tough times and we hope Nick is in a better place now.
Rest in peace, Nick Cordero.
