Actor Brad William Henke has died at 56 years of age.
Sheree Cohen, Henke’s agent, said to the Hollywood Reporter Tuesday that Henke had passed away in his sleep.
According to E!, Henke’s manager Matt Delpiano stated that Brad was a kind, generous, and happy man. We think of his wife and family.
Henke was an actor who had a role in “Orange Is the New Black.” Henke was an NFL player. Henke was able to attend the 1990 Super Bowl as a member of the Denver Broncos. According to a 1998 Tucson Citizen article, however, the Broncos lost that game.
His IMDb page states that he was in one episode of each show, including “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”, MacGyver, and “ER.” He also appeared in many episodes of “Lost.” He was also featured in “Space Jam”, which starred Michael Jordan, a legend of basketball.
According to the Tucson Citizen article, Henke said that “I’m fortunate I’ve found something I love to do a million more than football.” After my football career ended, I felt lost. This is the most wonderful thing I have ever done.
He stated, “I kinda regret that I didn’t start to act sooner.” He said, “But my life experiences before finding my calling have really helped.” “I’m not judging what my football pitch did.”
