Lena Dunham Mourns 'Girls' Guest Star's Death
Dunham calls Nick Lashaway, who was killed in a car accident, "a talented, funny and kind person."
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.
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.
