Tony-nominated Broadway star Nick Cordero, known for his work in Bullets Over Broadway, Rock of Ages, Waitress, and A Bronx Tale as well as television’s Blue Bloods, has died, more than 90 days after contracting the coronavirus.
His wife, fitness trainer and dancer Amanda Kloots, tearfully announced the news on her Instagram, where she had been keeping fans updated on Cordero’s harrowing COVID-19 battle since he entered Los Angeles’s Cedars-Sinal hospital in March. Cordero was 41 and had a 1-year-old son, Elvis.
“God has another angel in heaven now,” Kloots wrote on July 5. “My darling husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth.
”I am in disbelief and hurting everywhere. My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him. Nick was such a bright light. He was everyone’s friend, loved to listen, help and especially talk. He was an incredible actor and musician. He loved his family and loved being a father and husband. Elvis and I will miss him in everything we do, every day.”
