14-year-old child actor and ballet dancer, Jack Burns, who became popular through the TV shows, Plain Sight and Retribution, has passed away.

Jack was reportedly found dead at his apartment in Greenock, Scotland on Sunday, December 1. Although the cause of his death is yet to be determined, police do not suspect foul play. Elite Academy of Dance, a classical ballet school that Burns attended, shared a tribute to the boy on their Facebook page on Monday. It read, "It is with a very heavy heart that we write this post. Tragically as you know we lost our much loved student Jack Burns on Sunday, December 1. "Jack was an inspiration to everyone at Elite and touched the hearts of everyone who had the pleasure of working and dancing with him since 2012. We and all of Jack's family and friends are naturally completely devastated and at a loss for words and answers.

"Jack's family wish to let everyone know that his funeral service will be at 10 am at St Mary's Church, Patrick Street, Greenock, on Thursday, December 12. (Parents and brother) Karen, Robert, and Rory would love if those from his Elite Family that knew and loved Jack as much as they all do wanted to attend. They would also take much comfort if students wish to attend in Alba or Elite Hoodies and sit together on Thursday.

"Our studio will be open at 9.00 am on Thursday for those wishing to attend. All our thoughts and prayers at this time are with Jack's immediate family and friends but especially with his parents Karen, Robert and his brother Rory."
