Markice "Kesan" Moore, an actor and rapper best known for his role as prison survivor Andrew on season 3 The Walking Dead, attempted to commit suicide this week, TMZ reports. 

Moore was found on Tuesday, Feb. 17 after overdosing on a mix of Xanax and Patron. He was taken to the hospital where he was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold. He has since been released and is undergoing therapy. 

TMZ added that Moore recorded a video "in which he outlined his plan to end his life, telling his kids why he wanted to take such a drastic measure." 

Moore got his start in 2006 in the film ATL, appeared on the VH1 reality series From G's to Gents in 2008, and had a guest appearance on the series Army Wives in 2010. He played former prisoner Andrew for three episodes in season 3 of the hit AMC zombie series. 

The actor's manager told Us Weekly Moore was upset following the recent death of his grandmother. 

"At this time, Mr. Moore is focused on getting the help he needs and moving forward with his life to live it to the fullest," the manager tells Us. "He has a bright future ahead of him that he is looking forward to. We ask that you respect his privacy while he is taking time to heal and keep Markice and his family in your prayers."
