It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Nicholas Tucci has passed away at the age of 38 years old. The sad news was broken by Nick’s father Alexander Tucci who wrote on facebook:
“On Tuesday, March 3, Nick died at the Smilow Cancer Hospital in New Haven, Connecticut. Nick chose to keep his illness private so that he could continue to pursue his professional and artistic dreams for as long as possible. In the last year, he was able to audition, go on location, and continue the work he loved so much.”
“To those of you in the film, television, and theater communities…thank you for guiding, encouraging, and supporting Nick. To those of you who enjoyed Nick’s work on the screen and stage…thank you for recognizing his talent and appreciating his efforts. To all…thank you for your gift of friendship to my son.”
Nicholas was most well known for his roles in You’re Next and Channel Zero: The Dream Door. He also appeared in Choose, Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear, Faults, Daredevil, Long Lost, Myth, Person of Interest, Homeland, Quantico, and The Black List. He has upcoming roles in the films Ten Minutes to Midnight, Ballad of a Hustler, and Come Home.
