'Angel' Star Andy Hallett Dies at 33

(March 31) - Andy Hallett, the actor who portrayed the cheerful green-skinned demon Lorne on the TV series 'Angel,' has died from heart failure following a five-year battle against heart disease, according to E! Online. His friend and agent Pat Brady confirmed that the actor passed away at the age of 33 on Sunday night at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles with his father Dave Hallett by his side.
The actor and musician appeared in more than 70 episodes of Joss Whedon's series 'Angel' between 2000 and 2004 and contributed two songs to the 'Angel: Live Fast, Die Never' soundtrack, released in 2005.

Hallet's career took off when he was dragged on stage at a concert to sing with Patti LaBelle. He was later seen in a Los Angeles revue by 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' creator Joss Whedon, who created the demon character Lorne in the show's spin-off 'Angel' just for him, according to WENN.
A private funeral service will be held for family and close friends in Cape Cod, where Hallett was raised.
