Jahmil French’s cause of death is unknown – but his co-stars have paid tribute to the late star on social media today. The actor’s co-worker Chisme Chica confirmed his passing on Twitter.

He previously said he is very much like his character Dave.

In an interview with Channel Guide Magazine, he said: “My character’s kind of like the popular one, with lots of friends, and I can relate, because I’ve just always been, like, a floater in each group.

“I’ve always had friends everywhere. I’ve never been the kind of person to, like, be the catty one, or make enemies or that kind of thing.”

But, Jahmil said he was only at school for a year and a half as he went away from auditions.

“My dad had to drive back and forth,” he revealed.

He went on to say he had “a balanced and strong foundation at home” with my his parents.

“I feel like I’ve just been raised with having a good head on my shoulders and not getting myself into all the craziness that Alli has, which kind of goes hand in hand.”

“I’ve had most of my experiences through someone else’s eyes — of the character,” he added.
