Los Angeles, Nov 30 (IANS) American TV series “Hawaii Five-0” actor Keo Woolford, who also wrote, directed and produced the 2013 independent film “The Haumana”, died at the age of 49.
Woolford died on Monday at a hospital in Oahu, Hawaii, after suffering a stroke three days earlier, his publicist Tracy Larrua said, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
The actor, a native of Honolulu, also had small roles in films as “Happy, Texas” (1999), “Falling for Grace” (2006) and “Godzilla” (2014).
