Lena Dunham is mourning the death of actor Nick Lashaway, who appeared in an episode of her HBO series Girls.

The MetroWest Daily News in Massachusetts reports that the 28-year-old Lashaway was killed in a car accident in Framingham on Sunday night.

In an Instagram post Wednesday that features a shot of Dunham and Lashaway from a season-two episode of the comedy, Dunham calls Lashaway "a talented, funny and kind person" and says she'll remember "his playful smile" and "easy instincts."

In addition to Girls, Lashaway played a young Fox Mulder in a 1998 episode of The X-Files. He also had small roles in films that included Steve Carell's The 40 Year-Old Virgin and The Last Song, which starred Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.
