34-year-old actor/singer Chris Trousdale, who is famous for his roles in a number of American TV shows, including the urban fantasy series Lucifer, has died due to complications from COVID-19 in a hospital in Burbank, California.

A representative of Chris mentioned in a statement, "It is with a heavy heart that we confirm the passing of Chris Trousdale on June 2, 2020, from an undisclosed illness. He was a light to so many and will be missed dearly by his family, friends, and fans all over the world. Although it felt like he belonged to us all, the family is requesting that you respect their privacy at this time of grieving. Should you wish to make a donation in his honor, please give to ASPCA." Chris was a member of the boy band DreamStreet which came together in 1999.

Members of DreamStreet have offered their condolences on social media. In a post on Instagram, Jesse McCartney wrote, "It pains me to say that an old friend, Chris Trousdale, from my early days in the music industry, has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Chris had an explosively charming personality with boundless amounts of talent. Together we made up two of the five members of a boyband called DreamStreet. We were young kids with budding talent who shared an overwhelming love for music and performing. Chris, in my opinion, was the most popular among us, who had a way of drawing every eye to what he was doing on stage."

Another member of the band, Matt Ballinger, mentioned, "Today is a tough day. Chris Trousdale is no longer with us. It really doesn't feel real. Chris was such a big part of my life growing up. Being in DreamStreet together was truly a special experience that I will always cherish. As time went on we did lose touch, but I will always have fond memories of us performing and living out our pop star dreams together."

Chris Trousdale was an actor who began his career on the stage at the age of 8, doing a tour of "Les Miserables" with Ashley Tisdale and the Broadway production alongside Lea Michele, according to a report. Following the breakup of DreamStreet, Chris appeared in the TV shows "Shake It Up" and "Austin & Ally."
