His wife, Elena Pickett, confirmed his death.
Pickett was on location in Idaho, filming a scene for his upcoming movie “Treasure Valley” when he died, according to the film’s director, Travis Mills.
“He was doing what he loved: acting, riding horses, making movies. And he was magnificent,” he continued.
While the cause has not yet been released, Pickett’s death “appears to have been a heart attack,” Mills said, adding that everyone who was there did their best “to keep him alive.”
