Lena Dunham has paid tribute to actor Nick Lashaway, who appeared in her hit TV series Girls, after he was tragically killed in a car accident last weekend aged just 28.
Posting a still of the two of them from the show, Lena wrote:
"Just heard the incredibly sad news that Nick Lashaway was killed in a car accident on May 8th. Nick was such a talented, funny and kind person and we were so lucky to have him as a part of our Girls family when he played Frank."
She added: "We will always remember the week we shared with him, his playful smile, his easy instincts, how much he made us laugh even when we had to stay up all night in the woods. We are sending love to his family and friends and feeling such gratitude for his gifts. RIP sweet Nick."
Nick also appeared in a number of films before his death, including In Time, The Last Song, and The 40 Year Old Virgin.
Our thoughts are with his friends and family.
