A Vancouver-area actor known for his role on the popular TV show Once Upon a Time has died after crashing his motorcycle in Port Moody B.C. Tuesday.
Family and friends have confirmed on social media that Gabe Khouth suffered cardiac arrest while riding his motorcycle in the Lower Mainland city.
Khouth played the role of Sneezy in 43 episodes of the ABC show from 2011 until its end in 2018. He also featured in episodes of iZombie and Supernatural and movies like Tim Burton’s Big Eyes.
According to his IMDB page, Khouth was 46 years old and was born in North Vancouver. It also says he died on July 23.
Port Moody police originally reported the crash on Tuesday, which happened just after 1:30 p.m. that day at the intersection of St. Johns and Queens streets.
At that time, police said the driver was taken to hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries.
Police confirmed on Friday the victim, who they did not identify, died in hospital shortly after the crash.
“The police investigation is ongoing,” Deputy Chief Const. Ken MacDonald said in an email to Global News. “However, there is no evidence to indicate other motorists or persons were contributing factors in the collision.”
The BC Coroners Service confirmed they are investigating the death of a Vancouver man in his late 40s, but would also not identify the victim.
Jason Burkart, who played Little John on the show, posted video of Khouth’s brother Sam Vincent at the scene of the crash Thursday, urging people to bring flowers and messages to pay their respects.
Burkart also shared the location on his Twitter page along with his own tribute to Khouth.
On Friday, Vincent, who is also an actor, posted his own video confirming Khouth’s death.
“He went out doing what he loved,” Vincent says in the video. “He’s at peace now.”
Other former costars from “Once Upon a Time” have since taken to social media mourning Khouth’s death, along with the show’s co-creator Adam Horowitz.
