"We are devastated to hear about Adan Canto's passing. A wonderful actor and dear friend. We are honored to have had him as part of the Warner Bros. Television and Fox Entertainment families since his American debut," they stated.

Canto's portrayal in "The Cleaning Lady" was commended for demonstrating his artistic depth and vulnerability. His loss is profoundly felt across the entertainment industry, with colleagues and fans mourning the passing of a beloved actor.

In addition to "The Cleaning Lady," Canto was also widely recognized for his role in the Netflix series "Designated Survivor," where he played Aaron Shore. He also appeared in the film "X-Men: Days of Future Past" as Sunspot, further showcasing his diverse acting talents.

Adan Canto's untimely death is not just a loss to his family and friends, but also to the global entertainment community. His legacy will continue to live on through his impactful performances and the memories he has left behind.
