Jansen Panettiere passes away... Rest in Peace

 Very sad to read that actor Jensen Panettiere passed away. Panettiere was born in Palisades, New York, to Lesley R. Vogel, a former soap opera actress, and Alan Lee "Skip" Panettiere, a fire department lieutenant. Jansen had a supporting role in the Disney Channel Original Movie Tiger Cruise, which starred his sister Hayden (this is one of only two productions in which both siblings featured onscreen, the other being The Forger – Jansen lent his voice to Racing Stripes, in which Hayden appeared). He portrayed the voice of Truman X in The X's. He starred as Lucas Malloy in the made-for-television Nickelodeon film The Last Day of Summer, which first showed July 20, 2007. It was released on DVD on August 28, 2007.

His next film, The Perfect Game, was going to be released in theaters on August 8, 2008, but Lionsgate Films decided to push it back to the spring of 2010. The Perfect Game is directed by William Dear, based on the true story of how a group of boys from Monterrey, Mexico become the first non-U.S. team to win the Little League World Series. Panettiere also co-stars with Gavin MacLeod in The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry, a film directed by Rich Christiano about faith and friendship. He appeared with Martin SheenJamie Lee Curtis and Christine Lahti, as Elliott Perry in Dustin Lance Black's play 8, a reenactment of the Perry v. Schwarzenegger trial, at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre on March 3, 2012. The performance was broadcast on YouTube to raise money for the American Foundation for Equal Rights. In 2019, Jansen guest starred in the AMC network series The Walking Dead and co-starred in MTV's How High 2.

Our good friend Oscar Benjamin who is a film photographer, and a wonderful one at that he was friends with Jensen and had these nice things to say about the actor.
