The former child actor who appeared on “9-1-1: Lone Star” and “The Rookie” passed away at his home in Los Angeles on Thursday.
A cause of death has yet to be disclosed; an autopsy is expected to be performed in the coming days.
Originally from Houston, Sanders entered showbiz at the age of 10 and starred in projects such as “The Rookie,” “Fear the Walking Dead” and the Amazon Prime series “Just Add Magic: Mystery City.”
The young performer received a 2021 Daytime Emmy nomination for his role as Leo in “the Just Add Magic” spinoff, and has a pair of independent films that are currently in post-production.
Sanders had a presence on social media, sharing photos of himself engaged in an active lifestyle and in various locales, including on the shows and movies he worked on. His last post on Instagram was on June 12.
Despite no confirmation of his booster status, it can be noted that Sanders performed in November 2021 at the Comedy Playground, where proof of COVID vaccination is required.
The most recent television credit for Sanders was an episode of 9-1-1: Lone Star that aired in April. He also just finished two film projects that are now in post-production. Actors in the industry are required to have themselves injected with synthetic mRNA.
