‘Special Ops: Lioness’ actor Mike Heslin dead at 30

Actor Mike Heslin, who appeared in Taylor Sheridan’s “Special Ops: Lioness” and created the comedy series “The Influencers,” died suddenly earlier this week, three weeks shy of his 31st birthday.

“On July 2nd, my husband, best friend, and soulmate passed away from an unexpected cardiac event after a week-long battle in the hospital,” Heslin’s husband, Scotty Dynamo, said on Instagram Friday. “Michael was young, in perfect health, and the doctors have no explanation for what happened.”

At the time of Heslin’s death, the couple, who wed last November, were “in the early stages of starting a family,” Dynamo said.

“You always told me that you felt like you were meant to be a dad, and I couldn’t agree more. You would be the world’s most perfect father,” Dynamo wrote. “If I ever become a dad, I am going to name my son after you and hope that I manage to raise him to become at least half the man you are.”

Describing Heslin as “the most generous and giving person,” Dynamo said it “brings [him] peace” knowing his husband has “given the gift of life to four different families” through his wish to be an organ donor.

A GoFundMe set up to help with hospital and funeral costs had already raised nearly $49,000 of its $75,000 goal as of early Saturday afternoon.

In addition to his work on “Lioness” — which also starred Nicole Kidman, Zoe Saldana and Morgan Freeman — Heslin had roles in “7 Deadly Sins,” “Younger” and, most recently, the TV movie “The Holiday Proposal Plan.”
