At the age of 42, Adan Canto, the Mexican singer and actor most known for his parts in the TV shows The Cleaning Lady and X-Men: Days of Future Past, as well as Agent Game, passed away.
Publicist Jennifer Allen revealed to The Associated Press that Canto chose to keep his diagnosis of appendiceal cancer a secret.
Who is Adan Canto?
Canto, who was reared in Texas but was born in Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico, started his career as a singer-songwriter in Mexico City at the age of sixteen.
After that, he started acting, appearing on TV for the first time in 2009 in the Mexican series Estado de Gracia. Later, in 2013, he made his American television debut in Kevin Williamson’s drama series The Following on Fox, starring Kevin Bacon.
Notable appearances include those of the mutant Sunspot in X-Men: Days of Future Past, Colombian politician Rodrigo Lara Bonilla on Narcos, and vice president-elect Aaron Shore on Designated Survivor. Canto appeared in the action thriller Agent Game (2022) and Bruised (2022), Halle Berry’s directorial debut.
Adan Canto Cause of Death
In addition, he directed two short films: a daring western starring Theo Rossi in 2020 and a first one in 2014. Canto was filming the third season of Fox’s The Cleaning Lady, where he was starring as Armand Morales, at the time of his death.
His illness prevented him from taking part in the play, but he hoped to return later in the season. Canto laughed loudly and grinned widely. In addition, according to his acquaintances, he possessed a humility and sensitivity that contrasted with the bulk and square jaw of a movie star.
On his Instagram feed, Kiefer Sutherland—who costarred with Canto on Designated Survivor—shared this.
