LGBTQ+ icon Leslie Jordan has reportedly passed away at the age of 67.
The Comedian-actor, best known for appearing in Will & Grace and American Horror Story, reportedly passed away while driving in Hollywood.
The 67-year-old actor was declared dead at the scene, according to The La Times.
Leslie’s career, which spanned decades, featured highlights including Pee-wee’s Playhouse, Louis & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Star Trek: Voyager, Dharma & Greg and Ellen.
However, Jordan’s most iconic role was arguably in the trailblazing Will & Grace, in which he starred as Beverley Leslie, a socialite and frenemy to Megan Mullally’s Karen Walker. In 2006 he won an Emmy for his iconic performance.
Jordan was born in 1955 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and grew up in a strict religious household before turning to comedy, helping him overcome his struggle of coming out as gay.
“I firmly believe that God made me this way. I’m not a mistake,” he told Shania Twain on her Apple Music Hits show in 2021.
