Actor Mike Heslin, best known for his role as Polo on the Paramount+ original series Special Ops: Lioness, has died at the age of 30 following "an unexpected cardiac event," his husband, recording artist Scotty Dynamo, revealed in an Instagram post on Saturday (July 6) (h/t the New York Post).

"On July 2nd, my husband, best friend, and soulmate @mikeheslin passed away from an unexpected cardiac event after a week long battle in the hospital. Michael was young, in perfect health, and the doctors have no explanation for what happened," Dynamo wrote in the post. "Michael was brilliant, selfless, talented, and a real-life guardian angel. He single-handedly carried me through multiple rounds of cancer. He was the first person everyone would call to share good news with, and he was the perfect person to call if they needed a shoulder to lean on or the best advice. He truly was the sweetest, most caring, and loving man on earth, and he brought out the absolute best in everyone who had the pleasure to cross paths with him. He moved through life with such ease and confidence, and turned everyone around him into a better version of themselves.

"No matter how difficult things got, we knew that there was nothing we couldn’t overcome with Mike in our corner."

Dynamo said the couple, who were married in November 2023, "were in the early stages of starting a family" prior to his husband's death.

“You were the most generous and giving person,” Dynamo added. “It brings me peace to know that, through your wish to be a donor, you have given the gift of life to four different families. I know that you are in a better place and that heaven has gained another angel.”

A GoFundMe page was launched to help pay for Heslin's hospital and funeral expenses.
