In her Instagram tribute, Hart shared how Mull explained why he took so many roles.

"He once told me that he takes every job he's offered just in case the train comes to an end, which in this business tends to halt quickly," wrote Hart. "He was an artist who liked to paint and build things with his hands, a musician and a wonderful man who i am better for knowing. "
