Rob Kazinsky has certainly come a long way since his days on the much parodied, long-running UK soap opera, EastEnders. After several years spent playing supporting characters in notable projects, such as True Blood, Pacific Rim and Hot Pursuit, he has finally landed his first leading role – in a brand new sci-fi/drama series for Fox, titled Second Chance.
The premise of the show is something of a mixture of classic sci-fi themes, police procedurals, and family drama. The elderly Jimmy Pritchard is a retired, disgraced La county sheriff, renowned for corruption. Despised by his family, he is murdered during a break-in at the home of his son – but two “tech billionaires” resurrect him as one of their science projects. They find that, in returning, he is much younger and has strength and stamina five times greater than that of the average adult male. This realization leads to the idea »

The single-car accident happened October 30 near Reno, Nevada, and left him in critical condition. His mother had the gut-wrenching job of breaking the news of his death, and here's the update she shared on Facebook:
Nathaniel Marston Update: November 11, 2015 - Dear family and friends, it is with a heavy heart that I share this...

As she wrote, had her son survived, he would've required a ventilator, wouldn't have been able to speak, and would've lived as a quadriplegic. She knew her son better than anyone and said that's not a condition he would've wanted.
