Dies at 41

(CNN)Actor Ben Unwin, who made his name playing Jesse McGregor in Australian TV soap "Home and Away," has died at the age of 41.

New South Wales police found Unwin dead on August 14, according to a statement, one day before his birthday.
"Yesterday at midday police attended Minyon Falls, Whian Whian, responding to a concern for welfare. The body of a 41-year-old man was located," the statement said.
"The death has not been treated as suspicious."

Unwin appeared on "Home and Away" from 1996-2000 and 2002-2005.
His character, Jesse, played a major role in the long-running soap and was seen as something of a bad boy who was no stranger to a brush with the law.
After leaving acting, Unwin studied for a law degree and later worked as a solicitor.

The Seven Network, which has broadcast "Home and Away" since 1988, released a statement following Unwin's death.
"Cast and crew from Home and Away are saddened to learn of the passing of former castmate, Ben Unwin," reads the statement.

"Ben's work in the role of Jesse McGregor is remembered with much affection."

Interesting that his death is a headline on CNN seeing that he is an Australian actor virtually unknown in the US. However I do like how CNN has a "People We Lost" section that shows recent obits that currently has Unwin, Cedric Benson, Kathleen Blanco & Jack Whitaker. Some might otherwise not get a headline (NT)RussTuesday, August 20, 07:19:59am
