Harry Hains Cause of Death Revealed As Accidental Fentanyl Intoxication

American Horror Story actor Harry Hains died of accidental fentanyl intoxication, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner's Office has ruled.

The coroner's office announced the news on Monday, two months after Hains' death on January 7 in Los Angeles.

Hains, the son of veteran actress Jane Badler, died aged 27, his mother revealed in an Instagram post at the time of his death.

In a tribute posted on January 9, Badler, 66, wrote: "On Jan 7 my beautiful son died. He was 27 and had the world at his feet. But sadly he struggled with mental illness and addiction. A brilliant spark shone bright too short a time .. I will miss you Harry every day of my life."

A funeral service for the Australian-born actor, model and musician was held at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on January 12.

On January 14, Badler posted a photo of herself and other loved ones taken at a Los Angeles restaurant after the service.

Badler wrote: "Last night in Hollywood at Harry's favorite restaurant surrounded by so much love. ...Thank you to everyone who has reached out at this very difficult time . I am so grateful for the outpouring of love and support ....."

Hains had appeared in television shows such as American Horror Story, Netflix's The OA and Amazon Prime Video's Sneaky Pete.

His famous mother, Badler, played the main villain, Diana, in the 1983 science fiction television series V on NBC. Badler also appeared in a reboot of V, playing a different character, which aired in 2011 on ABC.

Badler's other credits include Falcon Crest and a 1988 TV adaptation of Mission: Impossible.

In March 2019, Hains, who performed music under the name ANTIBOY, spoke about his musical alter-ego, saying: "ANTIBOY is this character that I've created that is a gender fluid robot from the future, stuck in a virtual reality world that has been malfunctioning.

"I created ANTIBOY because it represents this future world that I foresee, not only where I think we are going with technology—fusing with AI and life extension—but also as a place where we've come to realize the complete deconstruction of labels," Hains told U.K. publication Boys By Girls.

In the same interview, Hains identified as "gender fluid," explaining: "I don't like the idea of labels. If I had to pick a label it would be in the realm of gender fluid. I know that I am born male but I don't think I represent what it means to be a man. I believe we should be whatever we want. It gets kind of confusing when we start labeling ourselves so I try to stay away from labels."
