12. Josh Ryan Evans
Due to his size, many people forget that Josh Ryan Evans was older than he looked. Even so, the soap opera actor was barely an adult when he died at the age of 20. He was known for his role on Passions and was pronounced dead at a hospital in California due to complications from a pre-existing heart condition. Josh had achondroplasia, in which his physical development and cartilage growth was inhibited. At just over 3 feet tall, he didn’t let his heart condition get him down. He went on to star in Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Ally McBeal, and other productions. He was even the first person on Passions to receive a Daytime Emmy nod. What was really creepy was that Josh died on the day that his Passions character’s death was aired on television. His Passions character, Timmy, was supposed to become an angel, but after Josh’s death, that idea was canned.
