The actor explained that he welcomes getting back to work after the loss.

"Time, hopefully, will heal, and you try to get through it, but it's just something... It's a reality of life," he said. "I think it's important to get back and start reliving your life. Otherwise, you can go into a spiral."

While the cause of death has yet to be determined, pending autopsy results, investigators have stated there were no signs of foul play or trauma.
