'Everybody Loves Raymond' star Sawyer Sweeten reportedly showed "no signs" of being depressed before taking his life.

The 'Everybody Loves Raymond' star's manager Dino May insists the 19-year-old actor appeared to be in good health before he apparently took his own life at his home in Texas on Thursday (23.04.15).

He said: "Everybody was shocked. [There was] no depression, no nothing. He was a good kid. Teenage stuff, but no depression, no signs or anything."

Dino also claims the young actor was a very normal teenager.

He told "Good kid, no drugs, no nothing, no drama, good parents. Everybody got along.

"[He was] just a great, very quiet, very shy kid."

Sawyer and his twin brother, Sullivan, played Geoffrey and Michael Barone on the hit TV show alongside their sister, Madilyn Sweeten, and the show's star Ray Romano.

The 57-year-old comedian paid tribute to his late co-star on Friday (24.04.15), saying: "I'm shocked, and terribly saddened, by the news about Sawyer. He was a wonderful and sweet kid to be around. Just a great energy whenever he was there. My heart breaks for him, his family, and his friends during this very difficult time."
