The Devastating
Death Of
Leslie Jordan
Leslie Jordan, the immediately recognizable actor with a distinct look and voice, has passed at the age of 67. Jordan's death occurred on Monday morning, October 24, 2022, and it is believed that he suffered some kind of medical event that resulted in him crashing his car into the side of a building. Jordan was declared dead at the scene.
Jordan had 134 acting credits to his name, which included stealing scenes in "Will & Grace" as Beverley Leslie, and in several roles on "American Horror Story." He also appeared in "Dharma &Greg," "Caroline in the City," and most recently "Call Me Kat," to just name a few.
During the COVID-related lockdowns, Jordan quickly built up a following on Instagram that saw his 88,000 followers balloon to 5.8 million and led a co-hosting gig on CNN's 2021 New Year's Countdown alongside Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper. He will be sorely missed.
