Aaron Eaton had just starred in his breakthrough film.

Brotherhood actor Aaron Eaton, who starred in the movie as ‘Teardrop’, has been found dead days after the release of the film.

The 29-year-old was recently nominated for ‘Best Actor’ in the International Achievement Awards for his performance in movie ‘AWOL – Absent Without Love’.

Actor and producer Noel Clarke has lead the tributes for Eaton alongside Stormzy – who was reportedly a childhood friend.

“This one has hit home I can’t lie,” said the ‘Shut Up’ MC. 

“You had a kind heart and so many people will be broken by this, rest up my bro.”

Eaton also worked as a mentor for aspiring young actors in London, regularly giving talks at youth clubs. 

“He had just made his big breakthrough,” a friend told the Evening Standard

“He was really excited about Brotherhood and where it might take him. He'd always wanted to be an actor.

"I don't have bad word to say about him. He was always smiling, happy. He was fun to be around and cared about other people."

The cause of Aaron Eaton’s death is currently unknown.
