It was sadly announced that afternoon that Don Payne, the writer of the 29-year-old actor’s films Thor and Thor: The Dark World, had passed away at the age of 48 after a battle with bone cancer.

“My heart is broken. You were a wonderful, funny man who helped change my life and I will always love you. The world is less today. Don, may you rest in peace and may peace and love be with your family. You are in my heart always,” Chris‘ co-star Jaimie Alexander tweeted.
