During his interview, Michael shared that his son “was in the hospital for a while so it wasn’t immediate.”

He added that his eldest had also been dealing with substance abuse for some time, and that it further “compromised” his health during his COVID-19 infection.

“Ultimately, when he got sick and went to the hospital, COVID was waiting for him… That was the knockout blow,” Michael said.

Michael‘s eldest was born when he was just 15. He also has five other children, not including his stepchildren from his wife Gillian Iliana Waters‘ previous relationship.

Michael is best known for his roles on The CW’s Arrow, Wonderland, and The Dark Knight.

This other prolific entertainer also just passed away from coronavirus.
