Troyer, star of the Austin Powers movies and VH1’s Surreal Live was hospitalized last week for a “reported poisoning” as well as last year for difficulties related to his battle with alcoholism. Troyer was reportedly suffering from depression.
The 2’8” Troyer was born with achondroplasia dwarfism, became an actor and stuntman, most famous for his role as “Mini Me” in Austin Powers, and started his own YouTube channel later in life.
Rest in peace, Verne.
