The 47-year-old had suffered a series of heart problems prior to his death. 

A biography shared to Vasquez’s IMDB page says the actor grew up in San Jose, California.

He fell in love with movies as a child, and performed in his first play, Ten Little Indians, at five years old. 

Just two weeks after finishing high school, Vasquez moved to Hollywood to launch his acting career, and made his television debut on Private Eye in 1988.  

Vasquez has also worked as a writer, producer and director. In 2008 he was credited as director on the documentary, Quincy Coleman: It’s All In The Song.

The documentary reportedly screened successfully at multiple film festivals.   

Vasquez’s biography also claims the actor worked with charities, and ‘assisted under privileged children by exposing them to the arts and influencing them to follow their dreams’. 

‘He is proud to be a part of the Latino Community in Hollywood and is an advocate for his Mexican/Spanish culture to be seen in more diverse roles in mainstream films and television,’ it reads.
