Notable work

Brian Tarantina (March 27, 1959 – c. November 2, 2019) was an American stage, screen, and television character actor born in New York City.[1] He was known for his roles on such shows as One Life to Live, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Gilmore Girls.

Personal life

Brian Tarantina was born in New York City on March 27, 1959, to father Frank William Tarantina and an unknown mother.[2] He attended what is now the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, where he then began to pursue an acting career.[3]

Shortly after midnight on November 2, 2019, Tarantina was found dead at his home in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. At the time of his death, his publicist attributed the cause to "complications from a severe health crisis he experienced a few months [prior]."[3] A New York City Chief Medical Examiner report, however, released in December 2019, stated that Tarantina died from an accidental "acute intoxication" (an overdose) of fentanyl, heroin, cocaine, and diazepam, the latter is otherwise known as Valium.[4] He is survived by a son, Sean; a sister, Claire; and a brother, Mark.[2][3]
