Broadway actor Nick Cordero died at the age of 41 after a fight with Covid-19
Nick Cordero, a Broadway actor whose fanfare for recovery was worldwide, according to his wife, Amanda Clotts, died after a fight with Covid-19.

He was 41 years old.

"God has another angel in heaven," Cloats posted on his official Instagram account Sunday night. "My beloved husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded by love for his family, singing and praying as he slowly left this land."

Clott regularly updates her social media accounts with news of her husband's ups and downs while battling viruses and complications, including a disputed leg. He said that Cordeiro battled with the disease for 95 days.

Born in Canada, Cordeiro grew up in Hamilton, Ontario and eventually made his way to the Big Apple.

In 2014, he was nominated for a Tony Award and a Drama Desk Award for his role in "Bullets Over Broadway", a role that earned him a Theater World Award and the Outer Critics Circle Award.

Cordeiro debuted the role of husband Earl in the Broadway production of "Waitress" as well as playing the role of Sunny in the musical version of Chase Palaminteri's "A Bronx Tale".

He also appeared on the small screen in episodes of "Blue Blood", "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Lillyhammer".

Cordeiro and Clots, a fitness trainer, moved to Los Angeles, where they starred in the musical "Rock of Ages" in 2019.

She met Clots, a former Broadway dancer, when she starred in "Bullet Over Broadway" and married in 2017.

According to Clotts, Cordeiro was initially hospitalized in March at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

She shared on social media that Coldero spent time on a ventilator, suffered multiple complications from Kovid-19, and had to amputate her leg in April.

When doctors tried to knock him unconscious, he spent weeks unconscious, and a #WakeUpNick hashtag campaign to recover Cordio sprung up on social media.

In May, Clotts reported that her husband was awake, although very weak, she was making progress.

"Even with his eyes closed, he takes it off," he said. "They are waiting for him to regain strength, of course, time and recovery will help with that, and eventually PT will help him become stronger."

Earlier in the month, she stated that her husband had a low blood count, but was not bleeding internally.

However, on another front, the news was not good.

"However, we found out that due to COVID, Nick's lungs have been severely damaged," he said. "They looked like a smoker for about 50 years. He said. They are very damaged."

Cloats recently told "CBS This Morning," co-host Gayle King that Cordero had become so severely ill that he might have needed a double lung transplant.

"Maybe that's the possibility," he said. "There is a 99% probability that I need to live the kind of life that I know my husband wants to live."

In addition to the clots, Coldero is survived by his 1-year-old son, Elvis.
