Benji Gregory became a US child star as Brian Tanner from the cult series “Alf”. The news of Gregory’s death is also a shock for the German actors involved in the international television hit.

Mourning for US actor Benji Gregory: The sudden death of the former child star from the television series “Alf” has also hit his German voice actor hard. “My role as “Brian Tanner” in the hit series “Alf” is now 37 years ago,” Gregory’s German voice, Dirk Meyer, told the German Press Agency in Munich.

“The series ‘Alf’ was very successful at the end of the 1980s and my participation at that time was my start in my career as a voice actor, which I still do today,” said Meyer. “At the time I was just eleven years old and still at school. It was an exciting experience for me as a child. The early death of the US actor Benji Gregory is regrettable and touches me too.” Gregory’s character was his “first continuous role in a successful series.”

Gregory died at the age of 46. He was found dead in his car on June 13 in the parking lot of a bank in Peoria, Arizona, his sister told the TMZ portal. The New York Times and other US media also reported on the death. The family also wrote on Facebook that they suspect he fell asleep in the car and died of heat stroke due to the high temperatures.
