The actor from Southend, Essex, has also acted in Snow White and the Huntsman and Eastenders.

According to The Echo, Darren even worked with Twilight megastar Kristen Stewart and 24 actor Kiefer Sutherland.

Lee Mead, who played “special” Darren in Joseph and the wonderful Technicolor Dreamcoat, described him as a “amazing human being.”

“Always giving of his time to people and always so positive,” he continued.

“A fine actor too and he achieved so much as well. Such heartbreaking news.”

And Penni Bubb, who founded Essex-based Mushroom Theatre Company, where Darren was a patron, paid tribute to a “lovely man”.

She said: “Darren was a very supportive, generous and lovely man.

“He thoroughly enjoyed spending his time with us and performing for our students – especially when he used to sing for them!

“We are going to miss our much-loved patron so much, and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this terribly sad time.”

During his career Darren won Best Actor in the Van D’Or Awards for his role in Sunnyboy, which was filmed in Essex.
