Harry Hains, American Horror Story Star, Dies


Australian-born actor Harry Hains, a famous actor from the famous American Horror Story television series, died at the age of 27. Just today the American TV series was renewed until the thirteenth season, but the enthusiasm was cut short by the pain of this young loss. Also known for acting in other TV series such as The OA and Sneaky Pete, he suffered from depression and sleep disorders. According to what the family said, in the last year the young artist had assumed self-destructive behavior and in the months preceding his death he would have faced mental health and addiction problems. Died on January 7, his funeral will be held in Los Angeles next January 12th.

The sad announcement of his death was given by his mother, Jane Badler, a famous actress who starred in Mission Impossible and Visitors. On his official account on Instagram, he wrote: “On January 7 my wonderful boyfriend died. He was 27 years old and a life ahead. Unfortunately, he was defeated by depression and addictions. A bright spark that went out too soon. I will miss you Harry every day of my life ”, attaching to the sad dedication also some shots of the actor in the company of his parents and brother Sam.

THE STORY – Born on December 4, 1992, Harry Hains was originally from Melbourne but moved first to New York and finally to Los Angeles when his acting career took off. In addition, the 27-year-old was also a model and a musician, also becoming famous for his gender fluidity both in real life and in his artistic profession. He had started the university with the intention of graduating in medicine, but he had given up everything to move to London. Finally, he arrived in Los Angeles to pursue a model career and make a fortune as an actor in Hollywood.

CLUB 27 –  On the news of his early disappearance, the web reacted with feelings of pain and bewilderment. In fact, the so-called “curse of the 27s” immediately bounced back on social media, an expression initially used in the press of the music sector from 1994 when, given the coincidence of age, the death of Kurt Cobain was related to those of Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison, all of whom died at the age of 27 in the short period between 1969 and 1971. Subsequently, the expression was extended to other members of the musical world who died at the age of 27, like Amy Winehouse in 2011, as well as some deaths at this age in earlier times, such as Robert Johnson in 1938. Other artists who died at the age of 27 are sometimes included in the club, such as bassist  Kristen Pfaff, a member of the Hole group. The reasons for the deaths are often attributable to alcohol or drug abuse, accidents and suicide.
