"The Marvelous Mrs Maisel" actor Brian Tarantina died due to accidental drug overdose, the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner has said.

A spokesperson of Medical Examiner's office told Variety that Tarantina died on November 2 from intoxication due to the combined effects of fentanyl, heroin, diazepam and cocaine.

When the authorities arrived at the scene, they discovered Tarantina lying on his couch, and emergency medical services responded and officially pronounced him dead.

"Brian had been ill lately. He was recently in the hospital and was in the process of recuperating from what I believe to be a heart-related issue," a representative for Tarantina had said.
