British/Ghanaian actor and model Sam Sarpong, brother of TV presenter June Sarpong, has died after falling off a bridge in America.
Police in Pasadena, California where he lived, said officers spent seven hours trying to talk the 40-year-old down before he fell.
Los Angeles County Coroner’s office said the case was being investigated as a possible suicide, but said the official cause of death would not be known until the results of toxicology tests are known.
Sarpong was born in London but moved to California as part of his career. He has modelled for Tommy Hilfiger and appeared in television series Bones, as well as co-hosting MTV show Yo Momma.
He is survived by his father and his sister June Sarpong.
