Dango Nguyen, a former firefighter and actor who appeared on “The Walking Dead” has died.
Georgia’s Athens-Clarke County Fire Department, where Nguyen worked for twenty years, says he died Saturday after a hard-fought battle with cancer.
Nguyen, known under his stage name Dango Nu Yen, left the fire department to pursue acting.
He appeared in several episodes of the third season of the Atlanta-based hit show about a zombie apocalypse.
Nguyen also appeared in other TV shows including “The Red Road” and “Banshee.”
Members of the fire department said he will be remembered for his physical and mental strength.
