R.I.P Andy Hallet

Shit. I mean damnit to hell! Dead at 33, from heart disease! If you're not a fan of the Joss Whedon universe I imagine you couldn't give less than two shits about this but I'm really bummed. Hallet as Lorne was one of my all-time favorite Whedon characters.

Here's a very short clip from the second season of Angel. For those that don't know, that is him singing, no syncing. Lorne was my favorite character from the entire 5 years of the show. Can't believe it, he was only 33!

That was one of my favorite characters too, but I didn't know anything about the actor.
That's really sad.

I know; it's hard to believe. Only 33! I've gotta go dig out some Angels and watch him do his thing.

Sorry to hear that...

Yeah, it sucks. But he'd apparently been fighting for five years. I guess we should be glad he's not suffering anymore.

Oh I am so sad to hear this. I'm a huge Whedon fan and I just loved Andy Hallet as Lorne. So sad.

Livia Indica said...

Yeah I know. I was hoping to see him in another Whedon project.

He was great as this character. I hadn't seen the news about his death.

I guess since he wasn't a huge star his death was big news. Been watching a few old Angel episodes since his death, I appreciate him more now.
