While the reasoning behind the Walking Dead actor’s recent suicide attempt has yet to be released, Moore’s manager reportedly told Us Weekly that he had been upset following the recent death of his grandmother.
“At this time, Mr. Moore is focused on getting the help he needs and moving forward with his life to live it to the fullest,” Moore’s manager said in a statement to the celebrity site.
“He has a bright future ahead of him that he is looking forward to. We ask that you respect his privacy while he is taking time to heal and keep Markice and his family in your prayers.”
Moore reportedly got his acting start in 2006 in the film ALT, before appearing on the VH1 reality series From G’s to Gents in 2008. He also had a guest appearance on the series Army Wives in 2010, and played former prisoner Andrew for three episodes in Season 3 of AMC’s the Walking Dead.
