Harry Hains, who played a victim of Jeffrey Dahmer in American Horror Story: Hotel and appeared on The OA and Sneaky Pete, died January 7, according to his mother, actress Jane Badler. He was 27.

Badler, who starred in both iterations of TV’s sci-fi series V, did not disclose her son’s cause of death but wrote on Instagram that Hains had “struggled with mental illness and addiction.”

“On Jan 7 my beautiful son died,” Badler wrote on the Instagram post last night. “He was 27 and had the world at his feet. But sadly he struggled with mental illness and addiction. A brilliant spark shone bright too short a time .. I will miss you Harry every day of my life.”
