Gerard Butler: “He had the heart of a lion”
Gerard Butler raves about Danesh’s joie de vivre in the post: “Those who were lucky enough to meet Darius for more than a few minutes were deeply moved by his infectious laugh and his almost untamable zest for life,” he writes. Hardly anyone could resist his “warm hug”.
Darius Campbell Danesh was “an incredible talent, a singer whose voice touched the soul and an actor with great presence”. “But most importantly, he had the heart of a lion. It was bigger and brighter than the sun, and his energy was so infectious he could light up a room in seconds.”
In addition to his humor, Butler also emphasizes Danesh’s great wisdom and he writes: “My heart aches a lot. But in the future I will beat my drum louder and celebrate life and each of its beautiful moments because my brother showed me that this is a pretty great one way of dealing with it.”
He sends “love” to the family
“My thoughts and love go out to his wonderful mother and father, Avril and Booth, and his two brilliant brothers, Aria and Cyrus,” Butler continued.

The cause of death is unknown. The police have therefore initiated further investigations, so far there have been no suspicious circumstances.
