His career also included television roles and film roles.

Back in April, Kloots mentioned Cordero was having flood issues. She said on Instagram, “We got a phone call saying one of the cannulas for the ECMO was stopping blood flow to his right leg and they had to go into immediate surgery to save the blood flow to his leg.”

On April 17, Kloots revealed how doctors were treating Cordero with blood thinners to help ease the clotting in Cordero’s right leg, but that the blood thinners were now causing issues with his blood pressure, which could lead to internal bleeding in his intestines.

Therefore, “We took him off the blood thinners, but that again was going to cause the clotting in the right leg. So the right leg will be amputated today.” Cordero thankfully survived the surgery and remained in intensive care while recuperating.

Cordero was honored with a Drama Desk Award for his role as Sonny in A Bronx Tale: The Musical and won a Tony Award in 2014 for his role as Cheech in Bullets Over Broadway. He also starred as Earl in Waitress and Dennis Dupree in Rock of Ages.

He played the role, Pete Ruggieri, in the Gambino crime boss movie, Inside Game.

Cordero appeared in the 2017 film, Going In Style, which was directed by Zach Braff, and starred Michael Cain, Alan Arkin, Ann-Margaret, and Morgan Freeman.

Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Cordero graduated from Westdale Secondary School in Hamilton, and attended Ryerson University in Toronto for two years before leaving to perform in the band Lovemethod.

Cordero’s debut was in the title role in the Off-Broadway production of The Toxic Avenger. He also played the role of Dennis in Rock of Ages on Broadway in 2012 and on tour.

Nick Cordero Age

Nick Cordero was 41 years old. He was born on September 17, 1978, in Hamilton, Canada. He died on July 5, 2020, in Los Angeles, California, United States.

Wife

Cordero and his wife Amanda Kloots, who tied the knot in 2017 were nothing short of relationship goals. He continuously posted tributes to his talented wife and captioned photos merely saying “#lucky” and “My Valentine for life. Thank you for making this ride so much fun. There’s no one I’d rather share it with. I love you.”

Children

They have only child, son, Elvis, was born via C-Section in June 2019.
When the couple announced they were expecting, Cordero was over the moon with excitement. He wrote on Instagram back in 2018, “We’re extra thankful this year. Amanda and I are excited to announce that we’re having a baby boy!!!! Lil Cordero will be here June, and we couldn’t be happier. We’ve always wanted to be parents, so this is the greatest gift. Wishing everyone out there a safe and Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours.”

The couple recently bought a home together in Los Angeles after relocating from New York, but because their new house was not ready before Cordero was hospitalized, one of his best friends, actor Zach Braff, opened his guest home to Kloots. It was a perfect solution amid coronavirus, as Kloots was able to stay a safe distance away from Braff while taking care of her son, and it allowed her space to have her family stay with her during this incredibly stressful time.

Health Condition

While Cordero spent 42 days in a medically induced coma at Cedar Sinai’s intensive care unit, he needed his right leg amputated due to blood clots. While doctors were able to get COVID-19 out of his system, Cordero continued to suffer from lung infections that stem from spending such prolonged time in the hospital.

What Kloots wanted everyone to know by sharing Cordero’s story was that he did not have any underlying health issues before contracting coronavirus.

Kloots wrote on Instagram:

“Nick is 41 years old. He had no pre-existing health conditions. We do not know how he got COVID-19, but he did. He went to the ER on March 30th and intubated on a ventilator on April 1.

My darling husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth.”

I am in disbelief and hurting everywhere. My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him. Nick was such a bright light. He was everyone’s friend, loved to listen, help and especially talk. He was an incredible actor and musician. He loved his family and loved being a father and husband. Elvis and I will miss him in everything we do, everyday.

To Nicks extraordinary doctor, Dr. David Ng, you were my positive doctor! There are not many doctors like you. Kind, smart, compassionate, assertive and always eager to listen to my crazy ideas or call yet another doctor for me for a second opinion. You’re a diamond in the rough.

I cannot begin to thank everyone enough for the outpour of love , support and help we’ve received these last 95 days. You have no idea how much you lifted my spirits at 3pm everyday as the world sang Nicks song, Live Your Life. We sang it to him today, holding his hands. As I sang the last line to him, “they’ll give you hell but don’t you light them kill your light not without a fight. Live your life,” I smiled because he definitely put up a fight. I will love you forever and always my sweet man. ❤️
