Actor Matthew Faber has died aged 47.

The Welcome to the Dollhouse star was found dead in his Van Nuys, Calif., apartment on Saturday, and is presumed to have died from natural causes, reported TMZ.

Faber’s brother, Mark, said the family had discovered the actor’s body after obtaining access to his unit, after they had attempted to get in contact with the star but “had not heard from him.”

In a statement to TMZ, Mark wrote that his brother was “a beautiful man. Incredibly talented. Wise beyond his years, quick-witted. Abundantly aware.

“He could really pay attention more than most. He had such incredible focus and ability to sustain concentration — brilliant man, very aware, very smart,” he concluded.

An official cause of death for the star, who also appeared in Law & Order and Natural Born Killers, has yet to be determined.
