(Newser) – The 27 Club just admitted a new member. Australian actor Harry Hains—who appeared in Netflix's The OA as well as American Horror Story—died Tuesday at age 27, his mother wrote on Instagram. Hains, who spoke of being gender fluid, had roles in various independent movies, including the starring role in 2015's The Surface, reports CNN. He was also a model and musician who went by the name "Antiboy," per the Guardian. He "had the world at his feet. But sadly he struggled with mental illness and addiction," wrote mother and fellow actor Jane Badler. Hains described "self-destructive" tendencies stemming from a childhood sleep disorder in an interview last year, per Newsweek. No word on cause of death. (Read more actor stories.)
