Former child star Evan Ellingson has passed away at the age of 35, as reported by several American media outlets, including TMZ.

Ellingson died at his home in Fontana, California, where he was found in his bedroom. The cause of death has not yet been clarified.

Evan Ellingson had previously struggled with substance abuse, which, according to his father Michael, he had overcome, and he had been living a sober life for an extended period.

Ellingson first gained recognition for his role as Kyle Savage in the comedy series "Complete Savages," produced by Mel Gibson, which follows a single father raising his five sons.

After the series ended, Ellingson continued his acting career with a notable role in the crime series "CSI: Miami," which later secured him other challenging roles in series like "Bones" and "24."

Ellingson is best known for the film "My Sister's Keeper," where he starred alongside Hollywood star Cameron Diaz.

However, it appears that he largely put his acting career on hold in 2010. Evan Ellingson is survived by his daughter, Brooklynn, who was born in 2008.
