Former Shortland Street star Pua Magasiva has been found dead.

The Herald understands the body of the 38-year-old was found in Wellington this morning.

Magasiva, who has a young daughter from his first marriage, married Lizz Sadler in April last year, 18 months after meeting on Instagram. Sadler also has a daughter from a previous relationship.

The actor rose to fame on Shortland Street where he played nurse Vinnie Kruse-Miller from 1994 to last year.

He also had roles in the Power Rangers television series, Sione's Wedding and Outrageous Fortune.

In 2015, he split up with his previous wife, Kourtney, whom he had married in 2012.

It's understood there are no suspicious circumstances.
