The actor’s family stated on Facebook that he died of a genetic liver condition.

Though McCarter had few acting credits to his name up until 2011, according to his website, he left acting behind in 1998 to purse a career in the telecommunications industry.

McCarter often made appearances at conventions, where he took photos with fans and signed autographs.
