Corey Haim, the '80s movie star known for his roles in hits such as "Lost Boys" and "Murphy's Romance," as well as his partnership with the similarly aged Corey Feldman, died of an apparent drug overdose early Wednesday. He was 38.
Haim was found unresponsive in his West Hollywood apartment, and was with his mother at the time of his death at 3:30 a.m., according to US Magazine.
Haim was born in Toronto, and took acting lessons at the behest of his mother to combat shyness. He landed his first role in the Canadian family series "The Edison Twins" in the early-to-mid 1980s.
He achieved acclaim with the 1987 film "Lost Boys," where he met and began his partnership with Feldman. In 2006, he and Feldman resumed their partnership with the reality show "The Two Coreys." It was canceled in July of 2008, a year after it premiered.
