About Evan Ellingson

Ellingson is best known for his roles in the 2009 movie ‘My Sister’s Keeper’ and on TV shows ‘CSI: Miami’ and ’24,’ but he hasn’t appeared on screen in more than a decade.

Ellingson played the son of Cameron Diaz and Jason Patric’s characters in ‘My Sister’s Keeper,’ and Abigail Breslin, who played his sister in the film, shared a touching tribute to the ‘kind, funny and extremely talented human being’ on Instagram.


‘Evan was a genuinely thoughtful person who cared so much about turning in the best performance, which he accomplished. Some of his scenes in MSK still give me chills. He was also silly, funny, a prankster, a lover of Red Bull (I hated the smell of Red Bull) and he was energetic and the life of the party,’ she wrote.

She continued, ‘I didn’t keep in touch a lot with him after the film, but he always stayed in my mind as a wonderful and sweet soul, one I am grateful to have crossed paths with. My prayers and condolences are with his family at this difficult time.’

Ellingson is survived by his daughter Brooklynn, who was born in 2008.
