Actor Andy Hallett died Sunday at the age of 33 of heart disease. I am saddened, I loved his character Lorne on 'Angel'. He was a great actor and singer.   sad

Sad indeed. I enjoyed his character

Re: 'Angel' Actor dies of congestive heart disease!

I thought he was a Buffy" character and not an "angel" character.

That's horrible, and at 33? that's scary.

Nope, definitely an 'Angel' character.

I had a hart attack scare about a year ago. I colapsed with chest pains in a parking lot. turns out something else caused it (thank god) very scary) I do believe the next world is better than this so i hope he is blessed in the next life.

Re: 'Angel' Actor dies of congestive heart disease!

I heard about this yesterday but the cause was still unknown at the time.  It's very sad to hear.  sad

Re: 'Angel' Actor dies of congestive heart disease!

Seriously, this has depressed me all day.  He was so cool.

Re: 'Angel' Actor dies of congestive heart disease!

What a loss; he was one of the best things about the show.

Re: 'Angel' Actor dies of congestive heart disease!

That's very scary and saddening, RIP

Re: 'Angel' Actor dies of congestive heart disease!

I read he died with his father by his side and that is the way to go, with loved ones near, I can only hope for such a death.

Re: 'Angel' Actor dies of congestive heart disease!

Oh my god that's terrible news. Rest in Peace Andy, you will be missed.

Re: 'Angel' Actor dies of congestive heart disease!

Andy was a lovely man, he was a friend of my husband, and I had the pleasure of speaking to him on the phone once, and he was Lorne, the character was kind of built around his personality.  What a wonderful guy.  He had me laughing so much and wouldn't give the phone back because we were having such a fun time, he even gave my husband a personalized autographed pic of him, calling me his "biggest fan", and was kind enough to ask about me every time they saw each other, I adored the guy.  Bless him.  Just the other night we were talking about him, wondering what happened to him, where he's been and whatnot, now we know, it's quite the blow.  Gonna light a candle tonight.  So sad.

I also loved that character.  LDD, it's nice to hear that he was a good guy in real life, too.  Dang, he was younger than me.

Rest in Peace.

i thought i was someone knew who had died.

Re: 'Angel' Actor dies of congestive heart disease!

He was fucking hilarious!  He kept his day job through the first season of Angel, because he thought it was a lark.  I asked him why he wasn't on his yacht, and he told me, "because your husband won't let me put you in a bikini to sit on deck!"  What a doll.  I'm gonna find a way to scan/post the pic he sent.  My husband does a little work for JW, and he'll pass his respects on today.

Didn't the actor that portrayed Doyle in the 1st season pass on as well?
