One of the most talented actors in Hollywood who led a successfully multifaceted career in multiple stage, film, and television projects, Andre Braugher was reported to have passed away on the 11th of December, 2023, Monday. Considering how he was only 61 at the time of his death and was still giving remarkable performances up until a year ago in masterpiece TV shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Good Fight, fans were shocked to hear about the tragic news of his passing away.
Yet, what’s even more surprising are the recently revealed upsetting details about the late actor’s medical condition prior to his unexpected death—something that has got fans even more devastated than ever before.
Andre Braugher’s Medical Condition Before Death Revealed
Andre Braugher‘s sudden and unexpected death came as a heartbreaking surprise to many, mostly because he seemed fine during his recent appearances on the big screen. However, his death wasn’t all too sudden, considering the medical records recently revealed of the late star.
Previously, following the announcement of his death, Braugher’s representatives only shared that he was going through a brief illness. But the actor’s publicist, Jennifer Allen has recently reportedly shared the cause of his death, citing ‘lung cancer’ as the reason, as per @DiscussingFilm on X.

This news has come as a massive blow to many, including even his co-stars from the big screen, considering how the late legend was rather camera-shy when it came to matters related to his private life.
Furthermore, as for the causes that could have induced this terrible disease inside of the Brooklyn Nine-Nine alum, the actor had previously shared with the New York Times in 2014 that he had stopped smoking and drinking years ago.
Nonetheless, this didn’t lessen the blow for almost everyone who heard it because Andre Braugher undoubtedly hid his sufferings well—well enough to not let even his co-stars be aware of it, just like the late Chadwick Boseman.

I’m glad for him and his family’s sake that they managed to keep it private until he passed. They didn’t deserve to have that plastered all over the news while he was going through it
