Gabe Khouth, who is perhaps best known to TV audiences as Once Upon a Time‘s Sneezy/Tom Clark, died on July 23 after appearing to suffer a cardiac arrest while riding his motorcycle, friend and fellow actor Peter Kelamis shared on Twitter. Khouth was 46.
“My brother loved to ride,” Khouth’s sibling Sam noted in a video, below, where he invited fans to pay tribute at the presumed sight of the crash in Vancouver, Canada’s Port Moody.
In addition to his run as OUAT‘s Sneezy, Khouth’s on-camera TV credits included Life Sentence, A Series of Unfortunate Events, iZombie, Supernatural and the role of Skip the Elf in the Santa Baby TV-movies. He also did much voice work, most recently on the series Beyblade Burst and Fruit Ninja.
OUAT co-creator Adam Horowitz remembered Khouth as “a lovely man, a great talent, and an indelible part of [our show] since the beginning. But more importantly, he was our friend. He will be missed.” Lee Arenberg, who played fellow dwarf Grumpy aka Leroy, is “devastated beyond words, hailing his TV brother as “sweet and spicy, hilarious and loveable and a pure talent.”
