Bert’s career was well on the way up — even at his young age, he’s already racked up 23 acting credits and had starred in a bunch of shows and movies. Obviously, he’s perhaps most well-known for playing Charles Whitmore on ‘LST’ for 52 episodes between 2011 and 2014.
We are really sad to hear this. When we first saw the headline in passing we were hoping BET was rebooting the sitcom. It was a show we actually loved and featured actors we love like RonReaco Lee, Christian Keyes, Kyla Pratt, and Erica Hubbard.
We are not sure what project Bert was working on, but we are praying for his family and friends during this difficult time. It is a truly terrible thing his life was cut short and that now a father has to bury his son…this is just wrong. Life really is too short.
