His "Designated Survivor" co-star Kiefer Sutherland posted a black-and-white photo together on Instagram and loving farewell words: "The loss of Adan Canto breaks my heart. He was such a wonderful spirit. As an actor, it was his Desire to do well, be great and then do better, really impressive and we will miss him very much."

Halle Berry, with whom Canto worked on the films "Bruised" and "X-Men," wrote on Instagram: "I'm still at a loss for words... But my dear, sweet friend Adan just got his wings. Forever, always in my heart."
