Andy Hallett dead at 33 of heart failure

I just got the word that Andy Hallett, who played Lorne on Angel, died today after a five year struggle with heart disease.

Hallett was the perfect fit for Lorne, who was a life-loving bon vivant more comfortable with a martini in hand than the hand-to-hand weaponry favored by the rest of the cast of characters. He brought to the role a knack for comedic timing and a certain panache that made him a bright spot on a very dark show.

And let's not forget his singing voice:

He will be missed.
