Actor of Broadway passes away.
Actor Nick Cordero who was admired by so many people from around the world has sadly passed away at the age of 41 years old. There were so many people supporting Nick’s recovery, in his long fight against COVID-19 but unfortunately Cordero couldn’t pull through.
We are so very saddened like the rest to learn that Cordero had died from the virus. This news was confirmed by his wife Amanda Kloots. He passed Sunday morning July 5th, 2020.
Amanda posted this on her official Instagram, remembering her late husband.
”God has another angel in heaven now.” “ My darling husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth.”
Kloots had been keeping everyone informed on her husband’s ups and downs as he fought the virus and its complications. During his fight with the illness he had to have his leg amputated. She would further go and say that Cordero had battled this disease for 95 days.
Cordero was born in Canada and was raised in the city of Hamilton, Ontario. He would get his big acting break in New York City.
Cordero was nominated for a Tony Award in 2014.
Nick Cordero would become very successful on the big broadway stage. His role in “Bullets Over Broadway” would earn him a Tony Award and a Drama Desk Award nomination in 2014. Cordero in the same role won a Theatre World Award and Outer Critics Circle Award.
In a role I thought was quite cool Cordero portrayed the character of Sonny in the musical version of Chazz Palminteri’s “A Bronx Tale.”
Guest-Apperances on TV -Dramas
The actor found roles on an assortment of different primetime TV network drama series including “Blue Bloods”, “Law & Order: SVU” and “Lillehammer.”
Nick and his wife Amanda relocated to Los Angeles where he would go to star in 2019 musical “Rock of Ages.”
Nick and Amanda met when they both were performing in “Bullets over Broadway.” She was a former Broadway dancer.
They were married in 2017.
His wife Kloots, said that Cordero was hospitalized back in March at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA.
For weeks Cordero was unconscious, that’s even after doctors brought him out of his sedation.
“The hashtag #WakeUpNick brought so much support on social media to support Cordero as he recovered.”
Cordero is survived by his wife Amanda, and their one year old son Elvis.
We here at AEE send out heartfelt condolences to the Cordero Family.
RIP Nick Cordero, gone way too soon, incredibly talented as an actor and a great Husband and Father.
