Wow… I’m stuck. Like in shock. Can’t fathom. Can’t believe…. Dustin Felder was one of the first and few ppl in the industry to show me love. We met on the set of After Earth. And he encouraged me. Gave me advice. And offered his resources and help. And he kept his word. Very rare in Hollywood. Such a rare gem. And I’m SICK to hear of his passing….. so very sad. Much love to his family. Rest well, good sir. 😢

Thank you so much for the nuggets you gave me, the career advice, and the craft coaching. You were truly one of a kind. Rest in Power, now, King. 😢😔🙏🏾❤️ My sincerest condolences to Dustin’s family, friends, and the #DFAS family.
