The Emmy-winning actor was driving in Hollywood on Monday morning and crashed into the side of a building, suffering from a medical emergency. In a statement, his rep said: ” “The world is definitely a much darker place today without the love and light of Leslie Jordan. Not only was he a mega talent and joy to work with, but he provided an emotional sanctuary to the nation at one of its most difficult times.”
Actor Sean Hayes shared a photo of the pair together on Will & Grace, and wrote: “My heart is broken. Leslie Jordan was one of the funniest people I ever had the pleasure of working with. Everyone who ever met him, loved him. There will never be anyone like him. A unique talent with an enormous, caring heart. You will be missed, my dear friend.”
