No cause of death was given, but the statement describes Troyer as a "fighter" who was unable to overcome a recent bout of adversity then goes on to discuss depression and suicide.

"While it's not always been an easy fight, I'm willing to continue my fight day by day", he said.

He was hospitalised for alcohol addiction a year ago and released a statement addressing his problems.

He was born in 1969 in Sturgis, Michigan.

Mr. Troyer was in several reality shows, including "Celebrity Juice", "Celebrity Wife Swap", and "The Surreal Life", and had a YouTube channel.

Troyer appeared in 1999's "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" and 2002's "Austin Powers in Goldmember", in which "Mini-Me" switches sides and becomes a miniature version of Powers.

"My parents were told there was nothing that could be done and Dad whisked me away to another hospital, where I was put in an oxygen tent, and thankfully I recovered".

Troyer was born with the genetic disorder known as achondroplasia dwarfism, but said growing up on a farm in MI he was never treated differently by his parents than his average-sized siblings.

Actor Verne Troyer from the "Austin Powers" movie franchise has died.

Singer Ludacris said, 'R.I.P. Verne Troyer aka Mini Me. Evil as played by Mr. Myers.

The 54-year-old actor shared a touching statement on Saturday (April 21) to his Austin Powers co-star after news of his passing broke.

He also appeared in "Men in Black" (1997), "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (2000) and "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" (2009).

Troyer's death was announced in a statement posted on his social media pages. His lawsuit said the tape was for his "own personal, private use". The post continued to talk about Troyer's limitations due to his size.

"I guess they searched worldwide and couldn't find anyone".
