NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Eddie Hassell, an actor best known for a recurring role on the NBC show “Surface” and the movie “The Kids Are All Right,” died Sunday after being shot in Texas, according to his representative. He was 30.

Hassell was shot outside his girlfriend’s apartment in Grand Prairie, a Dallas suburb, around 1 a.m., according to the representative, Alan Mills. He was shot in the abdomen and taken to a nearby hospital, where he died, Mills said. A call seeking additional information from the Grand Prairie Police Department was not immediately returned.

Mills said he saw reports of Hassell’s death earlier Sunday on social media and contacted the Hassell family. A cousin of the actor confirmed his death, Mills said.

Hassell appeared in 10 episodes of “Surface,” a sci-fi show staring actress Lake Bell, about “a new, and often dangerous, species of sea life,” which aired from 2005-06, according to IMDB.

In the 2010 movie “The Kids Are All Right,” Hassell played Clay, the pill-snorting teenager whose friends (Josh Hutcherson and Mia Wasikowska) are being raised by two moms (Julianne Moore and Annette Bening) when they meet their biological father (Mark Ruffalo).

In the 2013 film “Jobs,” Hassell played Chris Espinosa, a bespectacled 16-year-old who is roped into building circuit boards for a neighbor named Steve Jobs, played by Ashton Kutcher.

In one of his last acting credits, Hassell appeared in the 2017 movie “Bomb City,” a crime thriller about punk rockers in a conservative town in Texas.

Eddie Hassell was born July 16, 1990, in Corsicana, Texas, according to IMDB. By age 11 he had moved to Los Angeles to start acting and ended up finding a new hobby there, according to a 2013 profile that appeared in Elle magazine.

“Skateboarding’s been a huge part of my life; it also got me cast in commercials,” Hassell told the magazine. “I was into horseback riding and rodeos in Texas and when I moved to LA, I got into skating. I did all my own stunts. I’m into anything with a board: surfing, wakeboarding.”
