According to RTÉ, Fair City executive producer, Brigie de Courcy, paid tribute to the late actor, hailing him as "the heart of Fair City."

"This is devastating news," de Courcy said in a statement.

"Tom Jordan was the heart of Fair City. He played Charlie Kelly from the very first episode and was a huge part of our plans for the future.
