Actor Andy Hallett dies at 33

Played Lorne on TV series 'Angel'

Andy Hallett, who played the green-skinned demon Lorne on TV series “Angel,” died of heart failure Sunday in Los Angeles. He was 33. The actor had battled heart trouble for five years.

Born on Cape Cod, he attended Assumption College in Mass., then moved to Los Angeles. He worked for a talent agency and as a personal assistant before meeting “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator Joss Whedon while singing in a Universal City blues revue.

They became friendly and Whedon asked Hallett to audition for the demon’s role in “Buffy” spinoff “Angel.” He played Lorne for 76 episodes and sang in six of them, also contributing two songs — “Lady Marmalade” and “It’s Not Easy Being Green” — to the “Angel: Live Fast, Die Never” soundtrack in 2005.
