Grant Gustin’s The Flash co-star Logan Williams passed away at the age of 16 due to an opioid overdose.
Last month, it was revealed that Logan Williams, who played young Barry Allen on Grant Gustin’s The Flash, had passed away at the age of sixteen. The news came as a shock to many, including Gustin himself, who took to Instagram to share a heartfelt post. The cause of Williams’ death has since been revealed by his mother Marlyse, who spoke of her son’s passing to the New York Post. Williams’ autopsy report shows that the young star passed away due to a fentanyl overdose.
Logan Williams’ mother shared details regarding her son’s addiction, including how she tried her best to help the young star as much as she could. Williams spent some time in treatment centers in the United States and Canada. His mother continued by discussing how devastating his passing has been.
“Seeing him like that was as gut-wrenching as hearing that he died. It was horrific. Horrific. He was cold. But I have to say I feel like he was restless and he needed me to tell him it’s OK to let go and that the pain is over and he doesn’t have to hurt anymore.”
Logan Williams played a young Barry Allen on Grant Gustin’s The Flash for the first two seasons of the series. Since then, Williams also starred on the hit show Supernatural, which also airs on The CW. He most recently starred in the series When Calls The Heart. Williams passed away one week before his seventeenth birthday.
Logan Williams can be seen on Grant Gustin’s The Flash, which is getting ready for its seventh season. Here’s the official synopsis for season seven:
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).
With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)…Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man.
The Flash airs on Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET on The CW. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on the Arrowverse and subscribe to our YouTube channel!
