Mike Heslin: ‘Lioness’ Star’s Death at 30 Announced by Husband

It is with profound sadness that we report the passing of Mike Heslin, a talented actor known for his role in the TV series “Lioness.” Mike’s untimely death at the age of 30 has left a void in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. His husband, Scotty Dynamo, shared the heartbreaking news via Instagram on Friday, revealing that Mike passed away from an unexpected cardiac event after a week-long battle in the hospital.


In his heartfelt Instagram post, Scotty Dynamo wrote: “On July 2nd, my husband, best friend, and soulmate @mikeheslin passed away from an unexpected cardiac event after a week long battle in the hospital. Michael was young, in perfect health, and the doctors have no explanation for what happened.”

Mike Heslin was more than just an actor; he was a beacon of light and hope for everyone around him. Described by Scotty as brilliant, selfless, and talented, Mike’s presence had a transformative effect on those fortunate enough to cross paths with him. He was not only a pillar of strength for Scotty, especially during his multiple battles with cancer, but also a reliable friend and confidant to many.

Scotty’s tribute continued: “Michael was brilliant, selfless, talented, and a real-life guardian angel. He single-handedly carried me through multiple rounds of cancer. He was the first person everyone would call to share good news with, and he was the perfect person to call if they needed a shoulder to lean on or the best advice. He truly was the sweetest, most caring, and loving man on earth, and he brought out the absolute best in everyone who had the pleasure to cross paths with him. He moved through life with such ease and confidence, and turned everyone around him into a better version of themselves.”

Mike and Scotty shared dreams of starting a family together, and the love they had for each other was evident in every aspect of their lives. The couple often discussed their favorite baby names and looked forward to becoming parents. Scotty reminisced about these cherished moments, expressing his belief that Mike would have been the world’s most perfect father.


Scotty’s emotional message further read: “Just a week ago, we were in the early stages of starting a family and would regularly share our favorite baby names for our future kids. You always told me that you felt like you were meant to be a dad, and I couldn’t agree more. You would be the world’s most perfect father. If I ever become a dad, I am going to name my son after you and hope that I manage to raise him to become at least half the man you are.”

In a final act of generosity, Mike chose to be an organ donor, providing the gift of life to four different families. This selfless decision exemplifies the kind of person Mike was—always giving, even in his final moments.

Scotty’s post concluded with a poignant farewell: “You were the most generous and giving person. It brings me peace to know that, through your wish to be a donor, you have given the gift of life to four different families. We are 3 weeks away from your birthday and 4 months shy of our 1 year wedding anniversary, but I know that you are in a better place and that heaven has gained another angel.”

Mike Heslin’s legacy will live on through the countless lives he touched and the memories he created with his loved ones. As Scotty beautifully put it in the words of Shania Twain, “I’ll love you ‘forever and for always.'”


Rest in peace, Mike Heslin. You will be deeply missed.
