‘Joey Morgan came into my life nearly 9 years ago when I made Scouts. He was quiet, funny, intelligent and thoughtful,’ Landon began.

‘And when the cameras rolled he was magnetic. He passed today and the news is heartbreaking. I am honored to have known him,’ Landon concluded, with a broken heart emoji.

Landon didn’t reveal the cause of death, and neither did an official statement from the late actor’s reps.
