Kitaen said Conaway “has a wonderful sense of humor and never took himself too seriously.”
Had to lol at that bit, tbh. The guy took himself too seriously at least 75% of the time, but it's not good to speak ill of the soon-to-be dead.
Shame, but not exactly a surprise. The guy had no interest in sobriety in the long term. I understand having pretty difficult to manage pain, but he was medicating a lot more than physical pain away and couldn't find a way out. Sucks for him, and I hope that he recovers and it serves as a wake-up call for him rather than this just being the inevitable and sad end of a fairly mediocre actor.
