He was best known for his role as Rod on Australian soap Home And Away.
Innes reportedly died in his family home in Christchurch early on Saturday morning, after a battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, a lung condition.
He leaves behind three children.
In 2014 the actor suffered a stroke on stage while performing his biographical solo play Zen Dog.
"After the play, I had slurred speech but I put that down to the partying that went on during closing night. When I woke up in the morning I had trouble breathing so I went to the doctor and next thing I'm off to hospital in an ambulance," he said at the time.
He was kept in hospital for 10 days before being discharged and told he was "very lucky" it wasn't worse.
