Many in Hollywood and Broadway are paying tribute to Nick Cordero, the Tony-nominated actor who died Sunday after a grueling battle with the novel coronavirus.
Many had followed Cordero’s health struggles thanks to posts on social media by his wife, fitness instructor and former Broadway dancer Amanda Kloots, who made the announcement of Cordero’s passing Sunday on Instagram.
The Canadian actor was first diagnosed with what was thought to be pneumonia in late March and spent weeks in intensive care at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He had his right leg amputated, lost more than 60 pounds and was hoping to receive a double-lung transplant.
RIP Nick Cordero! My condolences to you Amanda who fought and loved so hard….so sorry for his little one. My heart is with you. May flights of angels….. https://t.co/nRE3AmS0A2

Nick Cordero passed at 11:40am today with his mother and wife by his side. I can honesty tell you I have never met a kinder human being. Don’t believe that Covid only claims the elderly and infirm.
I am so grateful for the time we had. “We’ll catch up some other time.” pic.twitter.com/Oq2a8QsIyH

The Nick Cordero story is so sad and makes it even more infuriating how so many people don’t take coronavirus seriously. https://t.co/Qlfc6xc0Lk

I didn’t know Nick Cordero personally but I’d been following his journey since he was hospitalized with covid 95 days ago. He fought so hard and today he lost his battle. What a tragic loss for his wife and baby.

Oh no, this is so sad. I really loved Nick Cordero in Toxic Avenger The Musical. He was able to play a notably silly part so well that it grabbed me & stuck with me for over a decade. Please – COVID-19 is real and it can tear your body apart. Wear a mask. https://t.co/FGgft6ipx5

Words can’t express the heartbreak clearly enough. He was one of the best. Everyone who knew him felt this way. This is such a profound loss. Rest In Peace, friend. We will miss you terribly. #NickCordero
