Published Dec 18, 2019The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel actor Brian Tarantina died earlier this year at the age of 60. Now, a medical examiner has confirmed that he died due to the combined effects of multiple drugs.
The New York City Medical Examiner's office ruled that the death was accidental, caused by "acute intoxication by the combined effects of fentanyl, heroin, diazepam and cocaine."
Tarantina was found by medics at his New York City apartment at 1 a.m. on the morning of November 2 after someone called 911 and reported him unconscious. Medics pronounced him dead at the scene.
Earlier this year, Tarantina's manager said that he had been suffering from a severe illness and had been recovering at home.
In addition to his role on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Tarantina also appeared in Gilmore Girls, The Kitchen and Uncle Buck.
