"Mortal Kombat: Legacy" Actor Darren Shahlavi Dead at 42

Posted: January 21st, 2015 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Mortal Kombat: Legacy" Actor Darren Shahlavi Dead at 42Submit Comment
Martial artist Darren Shahlavi, who appeared in the web series "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" and the TV series "Arrow," has died. He was found at his home by his roommate after apparently passing away in his sleep. The cause of death was not provided. He was only 42.

Shahlavi was born in England and began practicing martial arts at age 7. He moved to Hong Kong to pursue a stunt career in the early 1990s, where he was tapped to star in "Tai Chi 2."

He moved to the United States to continue his career, performing stunt work for films like "The Chronicles of Riddick," "Night at the Museum" and "300." He also had acting roles in 2002's "I Spy" alongside Eddie Murphy and 2004's "The Final Cut" with Robin Williams. In 2010, Shahlavi appeared in the martial arts film "Ip Man 2." The following year he starred in "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" as Kano.

Shahlavi has since had guest roles on "Arrow."

Cause of death: sh*tty acting career.

RIP, whoever the f*ck you were.

Maybe his heart committed suicide knowing it couldn't take knowing the height of its host's career was a made-for-Youtube low-budget adaptation of a sh*tty twenty year-old video game.

Lucky it.


UPDATE: news reports say he OD'ed.

What a dumb ass.

@bj

Yes, electrorock definitely wins the thread, and fink is so f*cking stupid that he thinks there was only the first Mortal Kombat game and there were never any sequels that followed.

The latest one, Mortal Kombat X, is released in April on PS3,PS4,XBOX 360, and XBOX ONE and PC.

For those that have jumped on the bandwagon that he was a junkie (imbeciles), this is from Scott Adkins' Facebook page:

"Unfortunately some websites that have no respect for real journalism are not reporting the real reason for Darren Shahlavi's passing so to set the record straight :-

Darren was recently prescribed a painkiller for his hip that he wasn't used to, and a toxic reaction to it, has sadly taken him from us. His passing leaves a huge gap many of our hearts and in the industry, as his full potential had only just began to be explored. He leaves us a legacy with his film work, to enjoy, to learn from and to be inspired by, and lets remember the man and the way he lived...
His family have been overwhelmed by the genuine emotional response to what happened, and are grateful for the heartfelt words and love that people are showing .
There will be a funeral in the UK, followed by a memorial service in the States, and there is a fund being set up to take care of some of the expenses, and i'll post a link to that as it becomes available.
Lets continue to respect the man, his work and his family"
