One of my favorite television series of all time, Joss Whedon’s Angel – is something I still get to enjoy every day thanks to TNT airing episodes in order every morning from 6-8am. In fact, I haven’t even opened my DVD packs for about 3 years since I bought them.
Sad news today, Andy Hallett – otherwise known as Lorne or “The Host” from that show, and series of comics – has died in Los Angeles from heart failure at the age of 33. Honestly, out of all the characters on that show – all the actors – my favorite was Andy Hallett’s Lorne. Hallett did a wonderful job portraying the sometimes overly flamboyant green faced demon.
It’s just astonishing, and so unexpected… My condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed.
