TMZ reported today that there are many rumors about the death of Tommy Lister, the infamous “bad guy” actor who almost always appeared as the bad guy or on-screen authority figure.
The point of sale reported this weekend that Mr Lister had fought COVID-19 in the past. So if he died from it, it would be the second time he’d contracted it after recovering from it once.
Cindy Cowan told the point of sale that Mr. Lister tested positive for the virus about four months ago and has many of the most common signs, including difficulty breathing, lethargy, and more. Cowan also explained how his diabetic condition made him particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.
According to Cowan, Lister was never rushed to the hospital, but he spent much of his time in his home in quarantine. On December 3, Cindy explained that Tommy was supposed to come to her home, but he called her and said he was starting to feel symptoms of COVID-19 again.
Cindy continued that Tommy had told her it was her best decision to at least stay away from him until he found out if he caught it again.
As reported by TMZ, Tommy died last week. The star was reviewed by the LA County’s Sheriff’s Department and they discovered his deceased body, and friends had reported their concern about the actor because no one had heard from him in at least several days.
Tommy reportedly had felt under the weather and had to cancel part of his shooting schedule he had with Sam Worthington. He also had to cancel another Zoom meeting on Tuesday. Cowan says Tommy told her he wanted to be one of the first to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
As fans of the actor know, Tommy has appeared in cult films such as The Fifth Element, starring Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich, Gary Oldman and Chris Tucker. He portrayed the President of the Galaxy.
