Lena Dunham is mourning the death of actor Nick Lashaway, who appeared in an episode of Dunham's, "Girls."
The MetroWest Daily News in Massachusetts reports the 28-year-old Lashaway was killed in a car accident in Framingham on Sunday evening.
In an Instagram post Wednesday that features a shot of Dunham and Lashaway from a season two episode of the HBO comedy, Dunham calls Lashaway "a talented, funny and kind person" and says she'll remember "his playful smile" and "easy instincts."
Aside from "Girls," Lashaway starred as a young Fox Mulder in a 1998 episode of "The X-Files." He also had small roles in films including Steve Carell's "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "The Last Song," which co-starred Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.
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 in episode 207. 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.
