'Austin Powers' actor Verne Troyer's cause of death revealed

Verne Troyer's death ruled a suicide

The actor, 49, died on April 21 after he was rushed to the hospital for possible alcohol poisoning.

He died aged 49 in April.

A report from the coroner listed the primary cause of death was "sequelae of alcohol intoxication", meaning that the intoxication was a outcome of his previous alcohol abuse.

("Sequelae" means "a condition that is the effect of a previous disease or injury.") When the 49-year-old was taken from his North Hollywood home to the hospital, it was reported that he had very high alcohol levels in his body, leading to alcohol poisoning.

As well as Austin Powers, Troyer, who appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2009, starred in films including Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Men in Black.

It also said he was "a fighter" and had his share of "battles" during his life, "but unfortunately this time was too much". You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside.

He had been open about his alcoholism and was treated for alcohol addiction previous year.

In an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in May, Myers described Troyer as "a great physical comedian".

When Troyer died, his family released a statement calling him "an extremely caring individual" who "wanted to make everyone smile, be happy, and laugh".

"As written, Mini-Me is nearly a prop", Myers said, "but he brought it up off the page better than written and we just ended up giving him more and more stuff to do".

Troyer addressed his current situation at the time in an Instagram post, writing "I'd like to address a very personal situation".
