We are deeply saddened to announce the loss of renowned actor Andre Braugher, who passed away at the age of 61 after battling lung cancer. His long-time publicist, Jennifer Allen, confirmed this news.

Braugher received the diagnosis only a few months ago and his private battle with lung cancer came to an end on December 11, after a brief illness. Known for his impressive career, Braugher gained fame with two Emmy Awards for his role in NBC’s “Homicide: Life on the Street” and later captivated audiences as Captain Ray Holt in the popular series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which aired for eight seasons on NBC and FOX.

Braugher’s portrayal of Captain Holt was a significant moment for LGBTQIA+ representation in media, earning him two Emmy nominations. His influence extended beyond the screen, evident in the heartfelt tributes from his “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” co-stars.

Melissa Fumero, who co-starred with Braugher, shared a heartfelt message on Instagram, recalling the actor’s guidance, humor, and deep devotion to family. Co-star Marc Evan Jackson, who played Captain Holt’s TV spouse Kevin, expressed his sincere condolences and praised Braugher’s ability to elevate every moment.

Survived by his wife Ami Brabson, their three sons, brother Charles Jennings, and mother Sally Braugher, Andre Braugher leaves behind a legacy of unparalleled talent, kindness, and significant contributions to the world of entertainment.

In remembrance of Andre Braugher’s legacy, the entertainment industry and global fans mourn the loss of a true icon.
