It's with a heavy heart that we report that after battling horrendous injuries sustained in a car crash on October 30th, star of '90s cult classic The Craft, Nathaniel Marston, has passed away aged 40.
Suffering from multiple injuries including a broken neck and broken back, Marston's mother Elizabeth Jackson, shared news of her son's tragic passing in a Facebook post on Wednesday.
Dear family and friends, it is with a heavy heart that I share this devastating news. My beloved and cherished son, Nathaniel Marston, who was putting up the good fight until last night was not able to continue due to the traumatic and devastating nature of his injuries. Nathaniel passed away peacefully as I held him in my arms.
If one can find a silver lining in these situations, Ms. Jackson has found solace in the fact that at least her son has been saved from an intolerable 'living hell,' and is now "surrounded with peace, love and light.”
Had Nathaniel lived he would have required a ventilator and would never have been able to utter one more word and would have been sentenced to life as a quadriplegic. A condition that Nate would have never have been able to tolerate.
According to reports, the beloved actor was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and no alcohol or drugs were found in his system. It's speculated that Marston may have fallen asleep at the wheel.
Nathaniel Marston played the character of Trey in The Craft, a fellow student at St. Benedict's Catholic School and good friend of Chris Hooker – the poor guy that was cast under a love spell after spreading nasty rumors about Robin Tunney's character, Sarah Bailey.
