7th Heaven star Lorenzo Brino has died at the age of 21.
Lorenzo along with his real life brother, Nikolas Brino played the Camden twins, Sam and David on 7th Heaven. Neither pursued an acting career after their time with the show. The Brino quadruplets — Lorenzo, Myrinda, Nikolas, and Zachary — initially took turns playing the characters.
His sister, Myrinda (Mimi) Brino, revealed the sad news of Lorenzo’s death on instagram:
“To my amazing and crazy brother. You might be gone but it’s true when people say “gone but never forgotten”. Saying that you were a blessing is an understatement. You brought light to so many lives and you did so much with the too short of a life that you had. I had the privilege of growing up side by side with you for an absolutely wild 21 years. Believe me when I say that you drove me so insane at times, but you were also a part of some of my most cherished memories. I am so so happy to know that I was beyond loved by you and that I forever have a guardian angel by my side.
Rest In Peace Lorenzo, I love you now and I’ll love you forever.”
The Yucaipa Poloce department released a statement via their facebook page about the accident, although they had not released Lorenzo’s name at the time of writing.

A friend of Lorenzo’s posted a loving tribute in memory of him on Youtube: “From September 21st-March 9th 2020 we were blessed to have Lorenzo Brino’s Beautiful soul in our lives. The amount of people he touched with his character and charm was unbelievable. He was a loyal friend and an amazing brother. He would always get my back no matter what. Rest In Peace Brother 🙏🏼 “
