Hamilton-born actor Nick Cordero has died due to COVID-19

Hamilton-born actor Nick Cordero has died after a three-month battle with coronavirus.

The Broadway star’s wife, Amanda Kloots, confirmed the news on social media on Sunday.

Cordero first entered hospital in L.A. at the beginning of April with what was first believed to be a case of pneumonia.

After two negative tests, a third test came back positive for COVID-19.

He suffered many complications from the virus, including a lingering lung infection and clotting issues that led to the amputation of his right leg.

Cordero was in an intensive care unit on various machines to help support his heart, lungs and kidneys.

He was in a medically-induced coma but had come out of it before his death.

His performance in “Bullets Over Broadway,” earned him a Tony nomination.

Cordero was also nominated for a Drama Desk Award for his role in the musical “A Bronx Tale.”

He is survived by his wife and their one-year-old son Elvis.

God has another angel in heaven now. My darling husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth. ⠀ I am in disbelief and hurting everywhere. My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him. Nick was such a bright light. He was everyone’s friend, loved to listen, help and especially talk. He was an incredible actor and musician. He loved his family and loved being a father and husband. Elvis and I will miss him in everything we do, everyday. ⠀ To Nicks extraordinary doctor, Dr. David Ng, you were my positive doctor! There are not many doctors like you. Kind, smart, compassionate, assertive and always eager to listen to my crazy ideas or call yet another doctor for me for a second opinion. You’re a diamond in the rough. ⠀ ⠀ I cannot begin to thank everyone enough for the outpour of love , support and help we’ve received these last 95 days. You have no idea how much you lifted my spirits at 3pm everyday as the world sang Nicks song, Live Your Life. We sang it to him today, holding his hands. As I sang the last line to him, “they’ll give you hell but don’t you light them kill your light not without a fight. Live your life,” I smiled because he definitely put up a fight. I will love you forever and always my sweet man. ❤️
