Buddy Duress, who starred alongside Robert Pattinson in Good Time, has died.

The Heaven Knows What star died aged 38.

Duress died of a ‘cardiac arrest from a drug cocktail’ in November 2023, his brother confirmed.

Paying tribute, director Jay Karales told People: ‘Buddy Duress was a once in a lifetime charismatic actor and a genuinely humble man that left an impression on everyone he met. I was extremely fortunate to be able to direct him and get to know him off-set during our time shooting Mass State Lottery.

‘What happened is a tragic and frustrating loss of visceral talent.

‘He lived like a cowboy and carrying the weight of that kind of life informed his skills and performances in a way that made him irreplaceable as an actor.

‘He has unfortunately become the John Cazale of our generation.’

Duress first starred in 2014 feature Heaven Knows What, before appearing alongside Twilight actor Pattinson in Good Time three years later.

He went on to hold roles in feature and short films, and recently appeared in an episode of The New Rich Family Grudge.

Duress is survived by his mother and younger brother Christopher.
