She told local newspaper Tri-City News: “I am not able to hug my parents who lost their only grandchild.

“It’s hard. With his talent and gorgeous looks, Logan had the potential to be a huge star.”

He played a young version of Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen in seasons 1 and 2 of The CW’s The Flash, as well as Miles Montgomery on Hallmark Channel’s period drama When Calls the Heart.
