Once Upon a Time’s Gabe Khouth has died at the age of 46. The actor’s friend, Beyond’s Peter Kelamis, made the sad announcement on Twitter late yesterday. Kelamis shared that Khouth was riding his motorcycle when he suffered a cardiac arrest, and “died as a result.” Here is Kelamis’ tweet sharing the news:
Gabe Khouth starred in the fairytale drama Once Upon a Time as one of Snow White’s Seven Dwarves. Khouth played Sneezy, who, in Storybrooke, existed as Tom Clark or Mr. Clark. Khouth was an original cast member, having appeared on the series starting with its first episode in 2012. He also appeared in the show’s series finale, which aired last year in 2018.
Once Upon a Time ran for seven seasons on ABC before coming to an end. Joining Peter Kelamis in mourning Gabe Khouth on social media has been Once Upon a Time’s co-creator Adam Horowitz. Earlier, Horowitz paid tribute to his friend with the following tweet:
The love and appreciation that Khouth's former cast members had for him is very apparent, as the words of remembrance kept coming.

Meanwhile, Sean Maguire, who played Robin Hood on Once Upon a Time, shared his devastation in the wake of Gabe Khouth’s passing. The actor is also planning to set up a Go Fund Me campaign for Khouth’s children. Maguire wrote:
The Canadian native got his start in acting nearly thirty years ago in 1989 with a guest role on the TV series Booker. He followed that up with an episode of the ensemble cop drama, 21 Jump Street in 1990. Gabe Khouth worked steadily from that point on with those 2018 credits mentioned above being some of the latest listed.
