Actor and singer Andy Hallett has passed away, aged 33.

Hallet, best known for his recurring role as Lorne in hit U.S. TV show Angel, died from heart failure following a five-year battle against heart disease.

He landed his first break after he was dragged on stage at a concert to sing with Patti Labelle - the performance kickstarted his career as a singer-songwriter.

Hallett was spotted during a revue at a Los Angeles nightclub by Buffy The Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon, who created the demon character Lorne in the show's spin-off Angel just for him.

The star appeared in 76 episodes before series ended in 2004. Hallet's subsequent ill health ended his acting career.

He died on Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, with his father Dave Hallett by his side.

That is incredibly sad. :-( It's bad enough when someone passes on when they're in the 80's or some such, but Andy Hallet was so young! *sends you hugs*

It's such a shame. He looked like he was enjoying himself so much in the series. *hugs back*

I know, I never knew he was ill and then he's just gone. Very sad.
