We express profound sorrow to report the departure of acclaimed actor Andre Braugher, who peacefully passed away at 61 following a courageous battle against lung cancer. The news was confirmed by his long-term publicist, Jennifer Allen.

Diagnosed just a few months ago, Braugher’s private skirmish with lung cancer concluded on December 11 after a short illness. Well-known for his illustrious career, Braugher rose to fame by clinching two Emmy Awards for his performance in NBC’s “Homicide: Life on the Street” and later mesmerized viewers as Captain Ray Holt in the popular show “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which ran for eight seasons on NBC and FOX.

Braugher’s portrayal of Captain Holt marked a pivotal moment for LGBTQIA+ representation in the media, earning him two Emmy nominations. His impact transcended the television screen, evident in the heartfelt accolades from his colleagues on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

Melissa Fumero, his co-star, shared a touching tribute on Instagram, reminiscing about the actor’s guidance, wit, and profound commitment to family. Marc Evan Jackson, who portrayed Captain Holt’s on-screen partner Kevin, conveyed his heartfelt sympathies and lauded Braugher’s talent in enhancing every scene.

Survived by his wife Ami Brabson, their three sons, brother Charles Jennings, and mother Sally Braugher, Andre Braugher leaves behind an enduring legacy of unrivaled skill, benevolence, and substantial contributions to the realm of entertainment.

In memory of Andre Braugher’s rich legacy, the entertainment industry and global admirers mourn the departure of a genuine luminary.
