Andy Hallet Dead At 33
If this turns out to be a sick April Fool’s joke… I officially hate the world.
Light your candles, my friends. It is time to grieve.
Andy Hallett, who played our beloved Krevlornswath of the Deathwok Clan, aka Lorne (The Host), has died of congestive heart disease at the age of 33. Hallett was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles after having problems breathing and died on Sunday, his agent Pat Brady announced.
Mr Brady said Hallett’s death followed a 5-year battle with a heart condition. Andy proved himself a fan favorite from Angel, as Lorne, a green-skinned, red-horned good-guy Pylean Demon who ran a karaoke club (Caritas) and was an entertainment lawyer for Wolfram and Hart, who could read a person’s aura when they sang.
He appeared in more than 70 episodes of Angel between 2000 and 2004.
This comes just 9 days after Alyson Hannigan (Willow from Buffy) gave birth to her first child, daughter Satyana Denisof, with husband Alexis Denisof (Wesley Wyndham-Price, from Buffy and Angel), on March 24th, 2009- which was also Alyson Hannigan’s 35th birthday. The loss must be a shock to both of them.
The wonderful guys at Cinequest are offering a deal, in honor of Andy. All orders of $25 or more will receive a free “The House Always Wins” Lorne action figure, so please, check that out.
Rest in Peace, Andy. We’ll miss you.
