Co-star Sofia Mattson, who played Brando’s wife Sasha Reeves, said on IG that she was heartbroken: “Johnny was one of those rare ‘real individuals’ that you almost never come across.

I was fortunate enough to have some really good conversations with him … He was a safe space for those conversations and, in turn, he would talk about his life. He genuinely cared about people and their journeys in life.”

Kristen Storms (Maxie Jones) wrote “I’m in a state of disbelief and complete sadness. I don’t typically do posts like this, but Johnny was such a special person and it feels important (for me) to put these words out there.

To @johnnywactor’s mother and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers.”
