Aaron Eaton has been found dead at the young age of 29- just days after Brotherhood was released in cinemas.
Known as “Yogi” to his mates, the Croydon actor played Teardrop in the new film directed by Noel Clarke. Amongst those who gave tribute to Aaron was Stormzy- a good friend of his.

Several reports have said that Aaron worked as a mentor for aspiring actors. One of his close friends said:
“He had just made his big breakthrough. He was really excited about Brotherhood and where it might take him. He’d always wanted to be an actor.
I don’t have bad word to say about him. He was always smiling, happy. He was fun to be around and cared about other people.”
My condolences to the family and friends of Aaron Eaton
