VARIOUS - Sad News People...

Sad News people as the following news story will attest...

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

Hallet, best known for his recurring role as Lorne in hit US 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 LA, with his father Dave Hallett by his side.

But on weirdly coincidental almost whedon esque story arc... today it was also reported...

Alyson Hannigan was given a special gift on her 35th birthday - her first-born child. The actress and husband Alexis Denisof welcomed baby Satyana into the world on 24 March - meaning mother and daughter will share the special anniversary.

A spokesperson for the star tells People.com, "They're very excited, and mom and baby are doing great." Hannigan and Denisof met on the set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 2000 and married in California in 2003.
