'Scrubs' actor Sam Lloyd dead at 56

Sam Lloyd -- best known for portraying lawyer Ted Buckland on the sitcom "Scrubs" -- has died, his agent confirmed to Fox News on Friday. He was 56.

Lloyd died on Thursday as a result of complications from lung cancer, according to a statement obtained by Fox News from the late actor's wife, Vanessa.

"Our family is devastated. It doesn't feel real. It never will. It just feels like he will walk through the door," the statement continued. "The overwhelming outpouring of love and sharing your stories about working with or knowing Sam keeps his memory alive and our hearts strong.

"Sam loved his work. I want to continue his legacy, and hope to share some of the beautiful songs he was working on for his musical and our son, Weston," the statement concluded.

In January 2019, Lloyd was diagnosed with a brain tumor shortly after Vanessa gave birth to their first child together -- a son named Weston, according to a GoFundMe page for the late actor. Doctors also found that the cancer had metastasized from his lungs and spread to his spine, jaw and liver, per the page, which was created by "Scrubs" executive producer Tim Hobert.
