The most talented teenage ballet dancer Jack Burns passed away earlier this month and he was only 14.
The Scottish child actor who performed in a few popular TV series like One of Us, Retribution and In Plain Sight was found hanging in his parents’ apartment in Greenock, Scotland.
While the reason for his suicide is still unclear the Police have not found any suspicious circumstances in his death.
The passionate dancer started learning ballet from the age of 9 and was fondly called the next Billy Elliot. The dance academy where he started his learning sessions paid tribute to him on social media, saying,
“It is with a very heavy heart that we write this post. Tragically, as you know we lost our much-loved student Jack Burns on Sunday 1st of December,” the academy said, “Jack was an inspiration to everyone at Elite and touched the hearts of everyone who had the pleasure of working and dancing with him since 2012…”All our thoughts and prayers at this time are with Jack’s immediate family and friends but especially with his parents Karen, Robert and his brother Rory,”.
It is notable that his brother, Rory Burns is also an actor who was featured in the famous Netflix series, Outlander.
