Austin Powers’ actor Verne Troyer’s death ruled a suicide

Troyer, known for his role as Mini-Me in the "Austin Powers" movie series, died on April 21, a spokesperson for the actor and his social media pages confirmed at the time.

Back in April, TMZ revealed that the 49-year-old was on life support after being taken to a hospital.

Troyer, who was born with a form of dwarfism that stopped him growing past 2ft 8in, spent the final three weeks of his life in hospital in Los Angeles for alcohol intoxication.

The coroner's office certified that the manner of death was a suicide.

Troyer's representatives had said last April he'd been struggling with depression and thoughts of suicide.

As well as Austin Powers, Troyer, who appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2009, starred in films including Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Men in Black.

"As you know, I've battled alcohol addiction in the past and while it's not always been an easy fight, I'm willing to continue my fight day by day", he said at the time. He also touched more peoples hearts than he will ever know.
