By Gabrielle Chung for People Magazine
Logan Williams, the teen actor known for playing a young Barry Allen on The CW’s The Flash, has died at the age of 16.
His passing was confirmed by his mother Marlyse Williams, who told The Tri-City News — a local newspaper serving the areas near Coquitlam, British Columbia in Canada — that her family is “absolutely devastated” by the death.
According to the grieving mom, the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has made it difficult for the family to mourn.
“I am not able to hug my parents who lost their only grandchild,” Williams said. “It’s hard.”
Williams’ cause of death has not been released.
A representative for the star could not be immediately reached by PEOPLE.
Grant Gustin, who plays the titular role on The Flash, paid tribute to Williams on his Instagram on Friday. Sharing a photo of him posing with the young actor on the set of the superhero TV series, he wrote, Just hearing the devastating news that Logan Williams has passed away suddenly.
