"We can confirm 100 percent that he never would have committed suicide," the manager told Access. "It was an accidental death. Everybody is in shock."
Adding that the 72-year-old star had been "full of life," his manager noted Carradine "was a wonderful person, an amazing actor, a great friend. Anyone who had ever worked with him wanted to work with him again. He was a very likable man."
Carradine's long career in film and television included a starring role in the 1970s series "Kung Fu," and a more recent role as the title character in Quentin Tarantino's two "Kill Bill" films, for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe.
At the time of his death, he was on location for his latest film, "Stretch."
